Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 18:22

_ _ lackest ... one thing — Ah! but that a fundamental, fatal lack.

_ _ sell, etc. — As riches were his idol, our Lord, who knew if from the first, lays His great authoritative grasp at once upon it, saying, “Now give Me up that, and all is right.” No general direction about the disposal of riches, then, is here given, save that we are to sit loose to them and lay them at the feet of Him who gave them. He who does this with all he has, whether rich or poor, is a true heir of the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 18:18-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 18:22

Yet lackest thou one thing — Namely, to love God more than mammon. Our Saviour knew his heart, and presently put him upon a trial which laid it open to the ruler himself. And to cure his love of the world, which could not in him be cured otherwise, Christ commanded him to sell all that he had. But he does not command us to do this; but to use all to the glory of God.
