It means, if you're looking back at your old ways, you're not really ready to be a Christian.

It means to stay focus on the task at hand of doing Gods Will and not to get distracted. Youre mind & heart should be all come summed with moving forward into the Kingdom of Heaven and nothing else.

I believe this verse is referring to people who accept Christ and call themselves Christians but then give up their walk with God because they find it can be hard work and their old life is still more appealing. I believe that these people believed that they were saved but were not because their 'conversion' was a short emotional experience with no depth to it.

It means exactly what it says. No one is fit for the kingdom of heaven. Those who are saved are not saved according to their fitness for the kingdom of heaven. No! We qualify for heaven by the mercies of God. And we are made fit for heaven by God's son.

I think of what would happen if you were behind a horse pulling a plow and you were looking backward while the plow was moving forward (o: The plow "might" not stay in the right direction, and would cut over the other furrows or make a new slice off into the unplowed part of the field.

I'd say this can mean not to look back by being unforgiving. Looking at past wrongs and being unforgiving can get us really off track and emotionally out of balance.
