Suppose you are talking to a boss, a friend, or a team worker. At the end of the conversation after you have gotten a list of duties, favors or requirements, the person says: "Oh, one more thing. Could you please.?" That "one more thing" is generally harder than all the rest.
 
That's the situation in today's Gospel. The young man was in a a conversation with Jesus, and innocently asked, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?"
 
Jesus told him, "You don't have to do anything to inherit eternal life. Simply avoid doing things, like killing, adultery, stealing, lying, defrauding, being disrespectful, or anything else that would muddy the focus of leading a life pleasing to God." But the young man protests. "I've done all that! Is there more?" Looking at him with love, Jesus gives the young man an answer. "There's one more thing: don't let your riches get in the way. Sell all you have; give to the poor. Come, follow me."
 
What's the "one more thing" that I or you must do to inherit eternal life?
