So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God. - Luke 12:21
This sad verse concludes the parable of the rich fool, the man who kept piling up wealth and feeling that nothing more was asked of him. His sudden death put a new light on his barns of unused grain. Have we some “wealth” to share? Are there helpful words still unsaid, outstretched hands we have ignored, sad hearts we could comfort? There is still time to open our “storage bins” to others.
May we reflect in prayer on what we still might do for Jesus who has done so much for us.
