Luke 18:15-29
Let the little children come to me

Now some people were even bringing their infants to Jesus to have him touch them. But when the disciples saw this, they sternly told the people not to do that. Jesus, however, called for the children and said, “Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom of God belongs to people like these. I tell all of you with certainty, whoever doesn’t receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never get into it at all.” Then an official asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked him. “Nobody is good except for one God. You know the commandments: “Never commit adultery. Never murder. Never steal. Never give false testimony. Honor your father and mother.'”
The official replied, “I have kept all of these since I was a young man.” When Jesus heard this, he told him, “You still need to do one thing. Sell everything you have and give the money to the destitute, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come back and follow me.” But when the official heard this he became sad, because he was very rich. So when Jesus saw how sad he was, he said, “How hard it is for rich people to get into the kingdom of God! Indeed, it’s easier for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into the kingdom of God.” Those who were listening to Jesus asked, “Then who can be saved?”
Jesus replied, “The things that are impossible for people are possible for God.”
Then Peter said, “See, we have left everything we have and followed you.”
Jesus told them, “I tell all of you with certainty, there is no one who has left his home, wife, brothers, parents, or children because of the kingdom of God who will not receive many times as much in this world, as well as eternal life in the age to come.”
