Luke 18:18-30

NLT 18 Once a religious leader asked Jesus this question: "Good teacher, what should I do to get eternal life?" NIV 18 A certain ruler asked him, "Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?" NLT 19 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus asked him. "Only God is truly good. NIV 19 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good--except God alone. NLT 20 But as for your question, you know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery. Do not murder. Do not steal. Do not testify falsely. Honor your father and mother.'" NIV 20 You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.' " NLT 21 The man replied, "I've obeyed all these commandments since I was a child." NIV 21 "All these I have kept since I was a boy," he said. NLT 22 "There is still one thing you lack," Jesus said. "Sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." NIV 22 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." NLT 23 But when the man heard this, he became sad because he was very rich. NIV 23 When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was a man of great wealth. NLT 24 Jesus watched him go and then said to his disciples, "How hard it is for rich people to get into the Kingdom of God! NIV 24 Jesus looked at him and said, "How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! NLT 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!" NIV 25 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." NLT 26 Those who heard this said, "Then who in the world can be saved?" NIV 26 Those who heard this asked, "Who then can be saved?" NLT 27 He replied, "What is impossible from a human perspective is possible with God." NIV 27 Jesus replied, "What is impossible with men is possible with God." NLT 28 Peter said, "We have left our homes and followed you." NIV 28 Peter said to him, "We have left all we had to follow you!" NLT 29 "Yes," Jesus replied, "and I assure you, everyone who has given up house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the Kingdom of God, NIV 29 "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 NLT 30 will be repaid many times over in this life, as well as receiving eternal life in the world to come." NIV 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life."
