A Rich Young Man

20 "Rabbi," he replied, "all these Commandments I have carefully obeyed from my youth." 21 Then Jesus looked at him and loved him, and said, "One thing is lacking in you: go, sell all you possess and give the proceeds to the poor, and you shall have riches in Heaven; and come and be a follower of mine." 22 At these words his brow darkened, and he went away sad; for he was possessed of great wealth.
