The Rich Fool

“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” Luke 12:15

Unfortunately, most of us live as though life really does consist of an abundance of possessions. While it is okay to be rich, it is important to understand that Jesus anticipates that we will also be rich towards God. (Luke 12:13-21)
