Jesus was getting ready to head out of town, and an American runs up to Him, kneels down right in front of Him, and asks Him, "Hey You Awesome Dude, what I can I do to get into Heaven?"
And Jesus says to the American, "Why you callin' Me 'Awesome'? There is no one awesome but God. Regardless, you know how to get to Heaven. Ten Commandments, amirite? 'Don't murder, don't commit adultery, don't steal, don't lie, don't commit fraud, honor your mother and father.'"
And then the guys says to Jesus, "I got all that down. I've done that all my life."
Jesus looks at the guy, REALLY looks through him. And Jesus felt so much love for this American, and He says, "There's only one thing keeping you from Heaven. Go sell all your stuff, give away everything to the poor. Then you will have a place in Heaven. Then, come and follow Me."
The American looked like Jesus had just punched him in the stomach. He didn't say another word, he just turned and walked away ... because he had a house, nice car, tv, a 401k, a good job, good income, so much stuff that he couldn't even park his cars in the garage.
