Some people were bringing little children to Him so He might touch them, but His disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw it, He was indignant and said to them, "Let the little children come to Me. Don't stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
I assure you: Whoever does not welcome a the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
After taking them in His arms, He laid His hands on them and blessed them.
As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before Him, and asked Him, "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
"Why do you call Me good?" Jesus asked him. "No one is good but One-God.
You know the commandments: Do not murder; do not commit adultery; do not steal; do not bear false witness; do not defraud; honor your father and mother. " b20
He said to Him, "Teacher, I have kept all these from my youth."
Then, looking at him, Jesus loved him and said to him, "You lack one thing: Go, sell all you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, c follow Me."
But he was stunnedd at this demand, and he went away grieving, because he had many possessions.
