This is by far the shortest Bible story that we have made so far. It comes from Luke 12.
|And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’|
|“Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain.|
|And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’|
|20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”|
|Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.|
- Where did this man’s money go?
- How should someone’s life look like if he was living for God and not for money?
