Matthew 19

  21 Jesus told him, "If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
  22 But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.
  23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is very hard for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.24 I'll say it again—it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!"
  25 The disciples were astounded. "Then who in the world can be saved?" they asked.
  26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible."
  27 Then Peter said to him, "We've given up everything to follow you. What will we get?"
  28 Jesus replied, "I assure you that when the world is made new* and the Son of Man* sits upon his glorious throne, you who have been my followers will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.29 And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or property, for my sake, will receive a hundred times as much in return and will inherit eternal life.30 But many who are the greatest now will be least important then, and those who seem least important now will be the greatest then.*

“When our church was looking to replace pew Bibles we wanted a translation that was both accurate and understandable. After much research, we chose the NLT. It combines accuracy and understandability like no other translation.”
