Then Peter replied to him, “Look, we’ve given up everything to follow you. What will we get out of it?”
We ought not say everything we think.
But even more amazing is the tendency of some people to utter every thought they have in their head, regardless of who hears it or how ridiculous it sounds. Most place the apostle Peter top in that category, but I've met people who put Peter's "foot in the mouth" disease to shame. In case you need another example, take my advice and never ask a woman when her baby is due. We need to ask God for quick reflexes to stop our mouth from speaking until the thought has been processed and approved by the Holy Spirit. Then, we would speak slower and never hear the dreaded reply, "I'm not pregnant, thank you, very much!"
