Consulted by a young man about what to do in view of "entering into life", an expression equivalent to inheriting eternal life, being saved, entering the Kingdom of Heaven, Jesus replies: "Practice the commandments." The young man already does, but he believes he must do something else: "What do I still lack?" Jesus encourages him by proposing that he go, sell all his possessions, and donate to the poor; Then come to follow him. It would be fully available to the Kingdom of heaven. That step, the young man can not give. He's not able to dispose of his possessions, so he goes away sad, "because he had many possessions."
