A certain ruler asked him, "Good teacher,
what must I do to inherit eternal life?"

"Why do you call me good?" Jesus
answered.
"No one is good—except God
alone.

You know the commandments: 'Do not
commit adultery, do not murder, do not
steal, do not give false testimony, honor
your father and mother.'"

"All these I have kept since I was a boy," he
said.

When Jesus heard this, he said to him,
"You
still lack one thing. Sell everything you have
and give to the poor, and you will have
treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

When he heard this, he became very sad,
because he was a man of great wealth.

Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it
is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!
(NIV)
The Rich Ruler

Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle than for a rich man to
enter the kingdom of God."

Those who heard this asked, "Who then can
be saved?"

Jesus replied,
"What is impossible with men
is possible with God."

Peter said to him, "We have left all we had to
follow you!"

"I tell you the truth," Jesus said to them, "no
one who has left home or wife or brothers or
parents or children for the sake of the
kingdom of God

will fail to receive many times as much in this
age and, in the age to come, eternal life."
