Peter began to say to Jesus, "We have given up everything and followed you." Jesus said, "Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come. But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first" (Mark 10: 28-31).
It is better to give than to receive. Those who give put themselves last and as Jesus says, “The last shall be first.” First in the life to come, eternal life.
Lord, putting myself last is awfully tough but with your help I know we can do it together.
