Hadith on Jihad: Nothing in the path of Allah but fighting?

Abu Huraira reported: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, when a young man approached us. When we saw him, we said, “If only this young man had given his youth and effort and strength in the path of Allah!” The Prophet heard our conversation and he said, “Is there nothing in the path of Allah but fighting? Whoever strives for his parents is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives for his family is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives for himself to be independent is in the path of Allah. Whoever strives to gain many possessions for himself is in the path of Satan.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ بَيْنَمَا نَحْنُ جُلُوسٌ مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذْ طَلَعَ عَلَيْنَا شَابٌّ مِنَ الثَّنِيَّةِ فَلَمَّا رَأَيْنَاهُ بِأَبْصَارِنَا قُلْنَا لَوْ أَنَّ هَذَا الشَّابَّ جَعَلَ شَبَابَهُ وَنَشَاطَهُ وَقُوَّتَهُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ قَالَ فَسَمِعَ مَقَالَتَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ وَمَا سَبِيلُ اللَّهِ إِلا مَنْ قَتَلَ مَنْ سَعَى عَلَى وَالِدَيْهِ فَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَمَنْ سَعَى عَلَى عِيَالِهِ فَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَمَنْ سَعَى عَلَى نَفْسِهِ لِيُعِفَّهَا فَفِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَمَنْ سَعَى عَلَى التَّكَاثُرِ فَهُوَ فِي سَبِيلِ الشَّيْطَانِ
