Gospel: Matthew 19:16-22

To follow Jesus, we must share what we have with the poor

Someone came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” And he said him, “Why you ask me about is good? There only one who good. If wish enter into life, keep the commandments. “Which ones? Jesus said, shall not murder; commit adultery; steal; bear false witness; honor your father mother; also, love neighbor as yourself.”

The young man said to him, “I have kept all these; what do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell your possessions, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this word, he went away grieving, for he had many possessions.
