“If you really want to reach the goal.” The Greek word teleios (#5046 τέλειος teˈ-lay-os) refers to bringing something to an end, a finish; bringing to completeness, maturity, perfection, or to a goal. In this case, the word “perfect” can be misleading. The man wanted to have everlasting life, which Jesus said he could have by keeping the commandments (Matt. 19:17). However, when the man pressed in and asked if he lacked anything, Jesus took the conversation to a new level, and said if you really want to reach your goal, sell all you have and you will have treasure stored up in heaven [that treasure would be actually conferred when the Lord set up his kingdom on earth; see Appendix 3: “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].
