Jesus’ Stories – The Rich Man
“I want it all…and I want it now.” It’s the American Dream, right? (And a line from a famous song by Queen). Our culture often encourages us to focus on the possessions of this world, storing up our money, resources, talents, emotions and other God-given gifts for our own benefit.
In the Parable of the Rich Man (Luke 12:13-21), Jesus shows us that “storing” these things is not the problem – but the purpose for which we are storing can be. What are you storing, or being selfish with? What gift are you hoarding that the Lord wants you to share with others?
