Review It:

Luke 12:13-20a (NIV)

This parable is not about the evils of long-term savings.

Abundance creates a unique kind of temptation. - 1 Timothy 6:10 (NIV)

Jesus is describing a self-centered person who is concerned with their own needs and wants.

Jesus never condemns wealth.

Question: How much of your money do you give away?

1 Timothy 6:17-19

God will not reward us for what we leave behind.

However, God has promised to reward us for what we willingly give.
