Jesus looked at him and loved him.

Mark 10:21 NIV

This was an expression of genuine love from a loving Saviour. The man in this story was misguided. He thought that he could get eternal life by doing something. Eternal life is not obtained like that.

Eternal life is only found through faith in the Lord Jesus. John, in his gospel, wrote: Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them (Jn.3:36).
