When Elijah called Elisha to follow him, we see the example from Elisha of what radical, single-hearted devotion looks like to follow the Lord in discipleship. Elisha radically purged out any hindrance to his following the call of God by slaying his oxen and burning his plowing equipment too. He removed his back-up plan or his rainy day fund to pursue Christ. Our radical discipleship should look odd to the world, and should also make lukewarm Christians uncomfortable.
