Z I don’t know if you really get what this scripture is about or not but I will post a reply for anyone who doesn’t. This isn’t about rich or poor. It’s about priorities. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven.” It is obvious from the young man’s reaction that he valued his wealth more than he wanted “to be perfect”. Wealth is not the only thing people put before God. For some it’s fame. For others it’s pride. For some it’s the appearance of being better than their neighbors. The Pharisees loved to “make a show of giving alms” but at least they were giving their own money. Now days they give away the money they have taken from hard working families and demand to be respected for how much they 'care'.
