The man replied, "Ever since I was young, I have obeyed all these commandments."
When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "There is still one more thing you need to do. Sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; then come and follow me."
But when the man heard this, he became very sad, because he was very rich.
Jesus saw that he was sad and said, "How hard it is for rich people to enter the Kingdom of God!
It is much harder for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God than for a camel to go through the eye of a needle."
The people who heard him asked, "Who, then, can be saved?"
Jesus answered, "What is humanly impossible is possible for God."
Then Peter said, "Look! We have left our homes to follow you."
"Yes," Jesus said to them, "and I assure you that anyone who leaves home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the Kingdom of God
will receive much more in this present age and eternal life in the age to come."
Jesus took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, "Listen! We are going to Jerusalem where everything the prophets wrote about the Son of Man will come true.
