Handling Your Possessions
|Luke 12 (NKJV™)|
|13||Then one from the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me."|
|14||But He said to him, "Man, who made Me a judge or an arbitrator over you?"|
|15||And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."|
|16||Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: "The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully.|
|17||"And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?'|
|18||"So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.|
|19||'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry."'|
|20||"But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?'|
|21||"So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."|
|22||Then He said to His disciples, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on.|
