How good is good?

Jonathan, my 10 year old informed me when I got home today that if he was good he would get to go with a friend to a local amusement park next week.  His statement implies an understood expectation, standard, and reward. This made me think of a verse in the Bibe. "And a ruler asked Him, 'Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?' And Jesus said to him, 'Why do you call me [...]
