The rich person loved his wealth very much. He didn`t want to share whatever he had. But he was a person of observing all the commandments of God. Eventhough he is loving the money and the wealth. This characterstics of the rich person make it harder to receive the Kingdom of God.

What characteristics of a rich person make it harder to receive the Kingdom of God?
Attachment to earthly possessions hence selfreliance and feeling that he can do without God. Danger to fall into pride. Possibly selfishness too. Everything is on loan to be used for the good of others. Obeying to the Commandments is the minimum a duty.

The Rich Ruler

A certain ruler asked him, saying, "Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus asked him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good, except one--God. You know the commandments: 'Don't commit adultery,' 'Don't murder,' 'Don't steal,' 'Don't give false testimony,' 'Honor your father and your mother.'"
He said, "I have observed all these things from my youth up."
When Jesus heard these things, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have, and distribute it to the poor. You will have treasure in heaven. Come, follow me."
But when he heard these things, he became very sad, for he was very rich.
Jesus, seeing that he became very sad, said, "How hard it is for those who have riches to enter into the Kingdom of God! For it is easier for a camel to enter in through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God."
Those who heard it said, "Then who can be saved?"
But he said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."
Peter said, "Look, we have left everything, and followed you."
He said to them, "Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or wife, or brothers, or parents, or children, for the Kingdom of God's sake, who will not receive many times more in this time, and in the world to come, eternal life."
