Mk 10:17-27
.” Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said to him, “You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what you have, and give to [the] poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
Gospel's Commentary
Today, a young man approaches Jesus. He asks Him what he should do to inherit eternal life. "You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony...,” replied the Lord. – All these I have kept since I was a boy! What else can I do? –Sell everything and follow me... but he could not do it! He was too much loaded with things; he had lost his freedom... and he became very sad. —Things are just the means. They are not eternal; but Jesus is!
