“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 lands, for my sake and for the gospel, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first” – Its important to remember that when we read the word, we have to read ALL of what’s before us and not simply focus on the parts we like and ignore the parts we don’t. For as this passage plainly states, yes, God will provide blessings, but also that He will also allow persecutions in your life; and that honor comes AFTER humility. So make sure that when you’re quoting the Word, you’re saying what Jesus said, and not simply the edited and sugarcoated version that man says — because there IS a difference; a HUGE difference!
