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.
