Pray and read Luke 12:16-21

What was Jesus’ biggest “beef” with the rich man in this story?
In what ways are you appalled by this story?
In what ways are you indicted by it?
What “barns” are you tearing down and rebuilding in your life?
To what end?

Luke 12:16-21

16 Then he told them a story: “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. 17 He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ 18 Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. 19 And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!”’

20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’

21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
