The disciples left all and followed Him.  We want to follow Him without leaving anything.  We want to shape Christ in ways that cost us very little.  The call to discipleship is a call to leave some things behind.   We walk away from all things that conflict with giving our Lord our all.  We give up the lesser for the best.  Life with a new Center prompts the leaving.  Because of our love for Him we do not even see it as sacrifice.
