      The content of the message is that a rich man should
      help the poor and the needy according to his richness.
      But the bible words teach us that a rich man's wish
      and ignorance that he can inherit eternal life with
      his richness. Jesus replies that richness is not
      the criteria for inheriting the enternal life. Though
      he was rich, he was not following the five commandments
      pointed out by Jesus. Jesus might have known that he
      became rich by foul means not obeying the commandments
      in his life. That is why He said to the richman to
      obey commandments lest he does sins again. But the rich
      man argued that he was following them from his childhood.
      Jesus understood his mind and put him in a trap and told
      him " You still lack onething.Sell all that you have
      and distribute to the poor". He was so sorrowful and
      left the place since he loves richness more than the
      eternal life.

      In this world there are many rich people who help the
      poor and needy, giving donations to charity and churches.
      But they do not follow the commandments often. In this
      world they get the due respect and admiration but what
      about the "eternal life"?.Jesus shows that his richness
      and good deeds will not help him to inherit the eternal
      life if he did not follow the commandments. Surely the
      bible words are for the rich who do not follow a true
      christian life and who thinks his richness is great
      than a Godfearing life.
