15 Then he said to the crowd, “Don’t be greedy! Owning a lot of things won’t make your life safe.”
16 So Jesus told them this story:
A rich man’s farm produced a big crop, 17 and he said to himself, “What can I do? I don’t have a place large enough to store everything.”
18 Later, he said, “Now I know what I’ll do. I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones, where I can store all my grain and other goods. 19 Then I’ll say to myself, ‘You have stored up enough good things to last for years to come. Live it up! Eat, drink, and enjoy yourself.’”
20 But God said to him, “You fool! Tonight you will die. Then who will get what you have stored up?”
21 “This is what happens to people who store up everything for themselves, but are poor in the sight of God.”
If you got everything that you’ve ever wanted and the health and strength to enjoy it and the loved ones to share it with, but you don’t have any pity on the poor or concern for the oppressed, orphans and widows and you don’t share your wealth with others and you don’t have an intimate relationship with GOD whereby you are storing up treasurers in Heaven, how would your material wealth serve you if at the end of the day you died?
Prosperity and material wealth are all overrated.
