Would You?

In Matthew 19:29  Jesus said

And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 

Forsaken: to forsake, lay aside, leave, let alone, let be, let go of, omit, put (or send) away*

Now, why in this world would Jesus tell us what comes to those that give up these thing?

UNLESS

People actually are required to give these things up?

Yep, it really does happen.  I know it does.

So

What have you been asked to give up, turn your back on, abandon?

If you haven’t been asked to do this yet, is there any thing you couldn’t?
