Jul 16 8.16 Someone in the crowd said, “Teacher, tell my brother to share our inheritance with me.”

Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me your judge or arbiter? Beware of greed, for a mans life is not in the abundance of his possessions.”

Then Jesus told a parable, “The farm of a rich man produced well. Thinking, he said, This Ill do about crop storage. Ill pull down my barns, build bigger ones to store these grains and crops. Then Ill say to my soul, You have much laid up for years. Take rest, eat, drink and be merry. But God said, You fool! Tonight your soul is required! Whose will these things you are preparing then be? So it is with anyone who amasses wealth without being rich towards God.”
