And as Jesus was going forth on his journey, a certain young man running up fell upon his knees before him and asked him, “Good Master, what shall I do to gain eternal life?”
But Jesus said to him, “Why dost thou call me good? No one is good but only God. Thou knowest the commandments. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not defraud. Honor thy father and mother.”
And he answered and said, “Master, all these I have kept ever since I was a child.”
And Jesus, looking upon him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing is lacking to thee; go, sell whatever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven, and come, follow me.”
But his face fell at the saying, and he went away sad, for he had great possessions.
And Jesus, looking round, said to his disciples, “With what difficulty will they who have riches enter the kingdom of God!” But the disciples were amazed at his word. But Jesus again addressed them, saying, “Children, with what difficulty will they who trust to riches enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
