Wealth and Worry

Reading: Luke 12:13-34

Key Verse:  Luke 12:20-21

‘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?”
‘This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich towards God.

Wealth or the lack of it both have dangers. The wealthy are tempted to trust in their wealth for their security, while the poor worry about making ends meet.

Jesus instructs wealthy who are tempted to ignore God and trust in their wealth for security, not be foolish but be generous and store up treasure in heaven, while those who are poor in this world’s goods are to trust in God’s goodness and know that nothing escapes his knowledge
