The Holy Gospel According to Matthew    19: 16-22

19:16 And behold, someone approached and said to him, “Good Teacher, what good should I do, so that I may have eternal life?”
19:17 And he said to him: “Why do you question me about what is good? One is good: God. But if you wish to enter into life, observe the commandments.”
19:18 He said to him, “Which?” And Jesus said: “You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not give false testimony.
19:19 Honor your father and your mother. And, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
19:20 The young man said to him: “All these I have kept from my childhood. What is still lacking for me?”
19:21 Jesus said to him: “If you are willing to be perfect, go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and then you will have treasure in heaven. And come, follow me.”
19:22 And when the young man had heard this word, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
