Luke 18:28 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New TestamentIt was well done and wisely done of Peter, to leave all and follow Christ; it was the best bargain he ever made in all his life.
But observe, how he magnifies that little he had left for Christ, and ushers it in with a note of admiration: Lo! We have left all and followed thee.
Learn hence, that though it be very little that we suffer for Christ, and have forsaken upon his account, yet we are prone to magnify and admire it, as if it were some great matter. Lord, says Peter, we have left all. what all, man, had thou to leave? A few ragged nets and tattered fisher-boat: a great all indeed, next to nothing at all: scarce worth mentioning, and yet how is it magnified? Behold, we have left all, and followed thee.
