What must I do?

In Matthew 19:16-22, a young man came to Jesus. He called Jesus Good Master. Then asked what he had to do to enter into the kingdom. Jesus told him that there is only one that is good and that is God. Then Jesus explained how to enter into the kingdom. What Jesus said was to follow the 10 commandments. The young man said that he had followed them from his youth. The young man asked what more do I lack. Jesus told him if you want to be perfect, go and sell everything you have and come and follow Me. The young man went away sorrowing because he was very wealthy. What Jesus was saying to us is that we are to surrender everything we have and let God make the decisions for us. We don’t understand or have the power to get us from this earth home. Only God knows what we need and can provide for us.
