“Jesús estaba a punto de partir, cuando un hombre corrió a su encuentro, se arrodilló delante de él y le preguntó: Maestro bueno, ¿qué tengo que hacer para conseguir la vida eterna? Jesús le dijo: ‘¿Por qué me llamas bueno? Nadie es bueno, sino sólo Dios. Ya conoces los mandamientos: No mates, no cometas adulterio, no robes, no digas cosas falsas de tu hermano, no seas injusto, honra a tu padre y a tu madre.’ El hombre le contestó: ‘Maestro, todo eso lo he practicado desde muy joven.’ Jesús fijó su mirada en él, le tomó cariño y le dijo: ‘Sólo te falta una cosa: vete, vende todo lo que tienes y reparte el dinero entre los pobres, y tendrás un tesoro en el Cielo. Después, ven y sígueme’” (Marcos 10, 17-21).

“As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up, knelt down before him, and asked him, ‘Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ Jesus answered him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness; you shall not defraud; honor your father and your mother. He replied, ‘Teacher, all of these I have observed from my youth.’ 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’” (Mark 10, 17-21).
