    [SIZE=16pt](Luke 12:16-20) “Then he told them a parable: ‘there was once a rich man who, having had a good harvest from his land, thought to himself, “What am I to do? I have not enough room to store my crops.” Then he said,” This is what I will do: I will pull down my barns and build bigger ones, and store all my grain and my goods in them, and I will say to my soul: My soul, you have plenty of good things laid by for many years to come; take things easy, eat, drink, have a good time”. But God said to him, “Fool! This very night the demand will be make for your soul; and this hoard of yours, whose will it be then?”[/SIZE]

    God called him a fool because his god was himself and his plans . the story has nothing to do with a Christian saving for retirement..

    The story has every thing to do with
    the first commandment..

    Haggai 1:2-8
    2Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the LORD's house should be built.
    3Then came the word of the LORD by Haggai the prophet, saying,
    4Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
    5Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
    6Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
    7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.
    8Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.

    Are you giving God what God thinks you should?
