"All these I have kept," the young man said. "What do I still lack?"
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect,1 go, sell your possessions and give to the poor,2 and you will have treasure in heaven.3 Then come, follow me."22
When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man4 to enter the kingdom of heaven.24Again I tell you, 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."25
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, "Who then can be saved?"
Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."5
