Luke 12:13-21

The Parable of the Rich Fool

13 Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, Friendwho set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?” 15 And he said to them, Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greedfor one’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.” 16 Then he told them a parable: The land of a rich man produced abundantly17 And he thought to himselfWhat should I dofor I have no place to store my crops?’ 18 Then he said, ‘I will do thisI will pull down my barns and build larger onesand there I will store all my grain and my goods19 And I will say to my soulSoulyou have ample goods laid up for many yearsrelaxeatdrinkbe merry.’ 20 But God said to him, ‘You foolThis very night your life is being demanded of youAnd the things you have preparedwhose will they be?’ 21 So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God.”

Colossians 3:1-11

he New Life in Christ

3 So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth, for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.

Put to death, therefore, whatever in you is earthly: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry). On account of these the wrath of God is coming on those who are disobedient. These are the ways you also once followed, when you were living that life. But now you must get rid of all such things—anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices 10 and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator. 11 In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all!
