St. Luke: Chapter 18:15-30
Jesus and the children
People even brought little children to him, for him to touch them; but when the disciples saw this they turned them away. But Jesus called the children to him and said, Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will not enter it.
The rich aristocrat
A member of one of the leading families put this question to him, Good Master, what have I to do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said to him, Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: You must not commit adultery; You must not kill; You must not steal; You must not bring false witness; Honor your father and mother. He replied, I have kept all these from my earliest days till now. And when Jesus heard this he said, There is still one thing you lack. Sell all that you own and distribute the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me. But when he heard this he was filled with sadness, for he was very rich.
The danger of riches
Jesus looked at him and said, How hard it is for those who have riches to make their way into the kingdom of God! Yes, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. In that case, said the listeners, Who can be saved? Things that are impossible for men, he replied, are possible for God.
The reward of renunciation
Then Peter said, What about us? We left all we had to follow you. He said to them, I tell you solemnly, there is no one who has left house, wife, brothers, parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God who will not be given repayment many times over in this present time and, in the world to come, eternal life.
