BEING BLESSED Jesus had just used a real life illustration with a rich man, who many would consider as being first in importance. The love for riches interfered with rich man entering the kingdom of God, which amazed Jesus' apprentices. They then expressed concern for themselves stating "we have left everything to follow you" ]Mk 10:28 NI]. Jesus reassurance that they would be taken care of concludes with "MANY WHO ARE NOW FIRST WILL BE LAST, AND MANY WHO ARE NOW LAST WILL BE FIRST" [Mk 10:31 CE]. Others have used this expression but to hear it from God's Son who said what God told Him to "SAY" [Jn 12:49] has the greatest of reassurance.  Many consider being first or last unimportant, when considering the blessing of being able to spend eternity with God and His son Jesus.
