Money Changes Everything (Keep Yourselves from idols)Sam Durdant-Hollamby
One of the multitude said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
But he said to him,
“Man, who made me a judge or an arbitrator over you?”
He said to them,
“Beware! Keep yourselves from covetousness, for a man’s life doesn’t consist of the abundance of the things which he possesses.”
He spoke a parable to them, saying,
“The ground of a certain rich man produced abundantly.
He reasoned within himself, saying, ‘What will I do, because I don’t have room to store my crops?’
He said, ‘This is what I will do. I will pull down my barns, and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
I will tell my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years. Take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.”’
“But God said to him, ‘You foolish one, tonight your soul is required of you. The things which you have prepared—whose will they be?’
So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.” Luke 12:13-21 (World English Bible)
