The Rich Young Leader
(Short Sketch)

As Jesus moved off again a religious leader came to him and knelt in the dirt.

Agur: Good teacher, how can I be good enough to get into heaven?

Jesus: Only God is good enough for heaven. If you want to enter eternal life then do what he tells you. Obey the ten commandments.

Agur: Which ones?

Jesus: All of them! Don’t steal, don’t commit murder, don’t lie or commit adultery, honour your parents and guardians, love your neighbour as you love yourself. You know the commandments, I’m sure.

Agur: But I do all of these. Every single one of them! All my life I’ve battled to get it right. I’ve worn myself out doing it. Yet I still seem to lack something.

Jesus: Do you want the truth?
