Wear his dust.
"To be chosen by a rabbi in Jesus’ day was the highest honor bestowed on a young man.
When a Rabbi said, 'Come, Follow me,' there was an old Jewish saying that said to follow a rabbi was to 'be covered with the dust of his feet.' When Jesus said, 'Come and follow me,' the disciples knew exactly what he meant. It was the Hebrew custom to walk very close to your rabbi or teacher so that you could learn of his ways in every area of life. Following so close, you would wear his dust."
