The Rich Young Man

In Mark 10:17- 22, Mark records the interaction between Jesus and The Rich Young man. At first, the young man seems to have a good intention. He asks Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (v.17). Jesus then replies with a portion of the Ten Commandment (v.19), which meant observing the Law written in Torah. The confident young man responds that he has kept “all these” (v.20). Sound familiar? We’ve all heard this story at some point of our lives. But it is what came next that gave me a new found revelation to evaluate my heart deeper in my inner life.
