And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? Only God is good.
“You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery. Do not kill. Do not steal. Do not bear false witness. Honor your father and mother.”
And he said, “All these I have observed from my youth.”
And when Jesus heard it, he said to him, “One thing you still lack. Sell all that you have, and distribute to the poor; and you will have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow me!”
But when he heard this he became sad, for he was very rich.
Jesus, looking at him, said, “How hard it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. For it is easier for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?”
But he said, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”
And Peter said, “Lord, we have left our homes and followed you.”
And he said to them, “Truly I say to you, there is no man who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive manifold more in this time, and in the age to come eternal life.”
