Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.” Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will receive a hundred times as much now in the present age, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and farms, along with persecutions; and in the age to come, eternal life. (Mark 10:28-30
Holding on to things and people amounts to nothing in this life. But holding on to Christ is everything.
The Scriptures tells us that “Our heavenly Father knows that we need things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all things will be added to us.” (Matthew 6:32-33 paraphrased)
Who or what are you holding on to? Who is your everything?
