AsJe­suswas­set­tin­gou­ton­a­jour­ney,aman­ranup, knelt down be­fore him, and asked him, "Good teacher, what must I do to in­herit eter­nal life?" Je­sus an­swered him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the com­mand­ments: You shall not kill; you shall not com­mit adul­tery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false wit­ness; you shall not de­fraud; honor your fa­ther and your mother." He replied and said to him, "Teacher, all of these I have ob­served from my youth." Je­sus, look­ing at him, loved him and said to him, "You are lack­ing in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to the poor and you will have trea­sure in heaven; then come, fol­low me." At that state­ment his face fell, and he went away sad, for he had many pos­ses­sions. Je­sus looked around and said to his dis­ci­ples, "How hard it is for those who have wealth to en­ter the king­dom of God!" The dis­ci­ples were amazed at his words. So Je­sus again said to them in re­ply, "Chil­dren, how hard it is to en­ter the king­dom of God! It is eas­ier for a camel to pass through the eye of aneedlethanforonewhois­rich­toen­terthek­ing­dom of God." They were ex­ceed­ingly as­ton­ished and said among them­selves, "Then who can be saved?" Je­sus looked at them and said, "For hu­man be­ings it is im­pos­si­ble, but not for God. All things are pos­si­ble for God." Peter be­gan to say to him, "We have given up ev­ery­thing and fol­lowed you." Je­sus said, "Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or broth­ers or sis­ters or mother or fa­ther or chil­dren or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not re­ceive a hun­dred times more now in this present age: houses and broth­ers and sis­ters and moth­ers and chil­dren and lands, with per­se­cu­tions, and eter­nal life in the age to come." (Mark 10:17-30)
