The Rich Young Man
The gift of eternal life or salvation. This threasure is not to be earned by self -deniel or giving of one`s material but it is to be received by following Jesus. In giving away his wealth, the young man would have removed the obstacle that kept him from trusting in Jesus.

Heavenly treasure
Jesus loved the rich man told to him that he should give whatever you have to the poor. And then come and follow Jesus. How much we will suffer for the sake of Jesus and spend for the Kingdom of God, we will become more blessed and will eligible for the eternal life. The eternal life is the real heavenly treasure.

Heavenly Treasure
This young ang rich man followed and obeyed the commandments of God since he was a boy. But still he lack one thing to inherit the heavenly treasure. Jesus explained that to do good things is enough to inherit eternal life, we must accept Christ first. To save your soul, Christ must save you from your sins, and enable you to walk before Him in newness of life. By accepting Christ we must totally surrender and giving up ourselves to the Lord. It means that all we posses our talent, time and treasure. That`s why Jesus sum up the commandments of God into two, to Love God above all, with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength. and to Love your nieghbor as yourself. If we love ourselves and treasure more than the Lord we cannot inherit the Heavenly Kingdom.

Heavenly treasures are the most prescious and most worthy af all which is the kingdom of god and the eternal life.The bible said that we must save treasures in heaven and not here on earth, the treasure here on earth can eated by pest, shattered, distruct, broken and gone, but we must save treasures in heaven for doing our best character, humbleness, sacrefices, obedience, helpful, giver, saver, server, provider and etc.All the best characters as we modeled jesus christ, for the teaching he leaved to us, this treasures were not destroyed by fires in time of judgement.

The Rich Young Man

As he was going out into the way, one ran to him, knelt before him, and asked him, "Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?"
Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good except one--God. You know the commandments: 'Do not murder,' 'Do not commit adultery,' 'Do not steal,' 'Do not give false testimony,' 'Do not defraud,' 'Honor your father and mother.'"
He said to him, "Teacher, I have observed all these things from my youth."
Jesus looking at him loved him, and said to him, "One thing you lack. Go, sell whatever you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me, taking up the cross."
But his face fell at that saying, and he went away sorrowful, for he was one who had great possessions. Jesus looked around, and said to his disciples, "How difficult it is for those who have riches to enter into the Kingdom of God!"
The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus answered again, "Children, how hard is it for those who trust in riches to enter into the Kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God."
They were exceedingly astonished, saying to him, "Then who can be saved?"
Jesus, looking at them, said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God, for all things are possible with God."
Peter began to tell him, "Behold, we have left all, and have followed you."
Jesus said, "Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, for my sake, and for the sake of the Good News, but he will receive one hundred times more now in this time, houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last; and the last first."
