Aug 26 9.19 As Jesus was leaving, a man ran up and knelt before him, asking, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

Jesus said, “Why call me good? None is good except God. To enter life, keep the commandments. Do not commit adultery, nor murder, nor steal, nor witness falsely, nor cheat. Honor your parents.” He replied, “Teacher, I have obeyed them from childhood.”

Jesus looked at him, loved him and said, “One thing you lack. Sell all your belongings and give to the poor, and you will have treasure1 in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Hearing this saddened the wealthy young man and he left sorrowfully.
