Luke 18:18-30

The Rich Ruler

18 a  And a ruler asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to b  inherit eternal life?” 19And Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. 20You know the commandments: c  ‘Do not commit adultery, Do not murder, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.’” 21And he said d  All these I have kept from my youth.” 22When Jesus heard this, he said to him, One thing you still lack. e  Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have f  treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 23 g  But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was extremely rich. 24Jesus, seeing that he had become sad, said, h  How difficult it is for those who have wealth to enter i  the kingdom of God! 25For it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter j  the kingdom of God.” 26Those who heard it said, “Then who can be saved?” 27But he said, k  “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” 28And Peter said, “See l  we have left our homes and followed you.” 29And he said to them, Truly, I say to you m  there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers
Or  wife or brothers and sisters
or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God,
30who will not receive o  many times more p  in this time, and in q  the age to come eternal life.”
