Matthew 19:29 (NIV) And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.
This means that those who decide to follow Him and accept Jesus as savior, even if it means that their families disown them for doing so, will enter Heaven.
I'd say that it literally means what it says. If you leave your life and security to do Christ's work, you'll be rewarded.
That could be going into the jungle to preach the Word to those who have never hear it (missionary work) or voluntarily leaving to help those in need (natural disaster, etc.).
"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
The first of the Ten Commandments. If filled with the Holy Spirit, believe me, nothing or no one is more important Jesus!
Mat 19:27-30 Then Peter said to Him, "Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?" And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. "But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.
