The rich man and Lazarus

Reading: Luke 16:19-31

Key Verse: Luke 16:31
He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead’

This passage deals with the big question of what happens to us when we die? When we look and understand the end of life, then the rest of the life makes sense. The passage touches on eternity and eternal punishment and eternal life.

If life is all there is, then to look after yourself first and foremost, to live like the rich man, makes sense. But suffering and putting others first only makes sense when we have the eternal perspective.

How we live matters, what we do with our assets shows what we truly believe. Do we use our wealth with eternity in mind?
