Keep the Questions Simple

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 19.
A young man wanted the greatest thing, and asked Jesus, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” (Matthew 19:16). Good question. He should have left it at that. Jesus answered Him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments” (v. 17). Good answer. The young man should have been satisfied with it. What more could a person want to do? However, the young man asked two more questions, and he did not like the answer he received for the third one.
Keeping the commandments of God surpasses everything we can do. Leave it at that.
