Luke 18:23 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New TestamentHere note, the effect which our Saviour's admonition had upon this person, He was very sorrowful.
Learn thence, that carnal men are exceeding sorrowful when they cannot win heaven in their own way. That such as are wedded to the world, will renounce Christ rather than the world, when the world and Christ stand in competition. He went away sorrowful, for he was very rich. Mar 10:22
