The rich young ruler came to Jesus seeking eternal life, even though he had always kept the commandments. Jesus said “sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; come, take up the cross, and follow me”. Jesus saw where the heart of the rich young ruler was. Whether it was the fact he would lose control, power, or tangible richness, he was not able to remove his identity from that and place it in Christ. Where do we find our identity in our life?
