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.”
Spreading the message of God’s unconditional love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion…being that message to the world…is what we are all called to do. Jesus said that should be His followers’ top priority…even ahead of family. The paradox is that when we let go of all things…as in when we stop being “attached” to them and clinging to them…we receive back a hundred times more…not in some future reward…but in the here and now! He says the pay-off comes in both the present and in the future because “now” is the only time that is real. Letting go of the sense of security we get with all our attachments leads us out of our comfort zones…and into the realization of our true selves. Take note that Jesus also says you will be persecuted because you will be promoting a way of life opposed to the world’s consumer and materialistic philosophy that advocates being attached to more and more stuff. Ask yourself, “What do I need to let go of so that I can be free to be a more loving, merciful, forgiving and compassionate person?”
