Luke 14:33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
Jesus wants to be first. Everything of value has to be put aside. You can’t let anything be there to steal your affection. Make a decision. It is either Jesus or something else.
That is not that hard to understand really. You can’t love more than one woman. Your wife would say you should love her and only her. How come it is so hard to understand that God feels that way.
Your wife doesn’t want to be second to your sports, your money, or even your business. Neither does God. Choose to put Him first. He is your life. He is the reason you are alive.
Turn your back on everything else and put Jesus first. God says you can’t hold on to anything else.
