Bible: Luke 12:16-21

12:16 He then 1  told them a parable: 2  “The land of a certain rich man produced 3  an abundant crop, 12:17 so 4  he thought to himself, 5 What should I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 6  12:18 Then 7  he said, ‘I 8  will do this: I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 12:19 And I will say to myself, 9 You have plenty of goods stored up for many years; relax, eat, drink, celebrate!”’ 12:20 But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life 10  will be demanded back from 11  you, but who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 12  12:21 So it is with the one who stores up riches for himself, 13  but is not rich toward God.”
