Peter began to say to Jesus, â€œLook, we have left everything and followed you.â€ Jesus said, â€œTruly I tell you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields, for my sake and for the sake of the good news, who will not receive a hundredfold now in this ageâ€”houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children, and fields with persecutionsâ€”and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.â€
