What is the "blessed life?"

“A picture of the sad life.”

Matthew 19:16,20-26 ERV
[16] A man came to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to have eternal life?" [20] The young man said, "I have obeyed all these commands. What else do I need?
[21] Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, then go and sell all that you own. Give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven. Then come and follow me!" [22] But when the young man heard Jesus tell him to give away his money, he was sad. He didn't want to do this, because he was very rich. So he left. [23] Then Jesus said to his followers, "The truth is, it will be very hard for a rich person to enter God's kingdom. [24] Yes, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter God's kingdom." [25] The followers were amazed to hear this. They asked, " Then who can be saved?" [26] Jesus looked at them and said, "This is something that people cannot do. But God can do anything."
馬 太 福 音 19:16, 20-26 CUV
[16] 有 一 個 人 來 見 耶 穌 , 說 : 夫 子 ( 有 古 卷 : 良 善 的 夫 子 ) , 我 該 做 甚 麼 善 事 才 能 得 永 生 ?
[20] 那 少 年 人 說 : 這 一 切 我 都 遵 守 了 , 還 缺 少 甚 麼 呢 ? [21] 耶 穌 說 : 你 若 願 意 作 完 全 人 , 可 去 變 賣 你 所 有 的 , 分 給 窮 人 , 就 必 有 財 寶 在 天 上 ; 你 還 要 來 跟 從 我 。 [22] 那 少 年 人 聽 見 這 話 , 就 憂 憂 愁 愁 的 走 了 , 因 為 他 的 產 業 很 多 。 [23] 耶 穌 對 門 徒 說 : 我 實 在 告 訴 你 們 , 財 主 進 天 國 是 難 的 。 [24] 我 又 告 訴 你 們 , 駱 駝 穿 過 針 的 眼 , 比 財 主 進 神 的 國 還 容 易 呢 ! [25] 門 徒 聽 見 這 話 , 就 希 奇 得 很 , 說 : 這 樣 誰 能 得 救 呢 ? [26] 耶 穌 看 著 他 們 , 說 : 在 人 這 是 不 能 的 , 在 神 凡 事 都 能 。
