Someone in the crowd said to him, â€œTeacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me.â€ But he said to him, â€œFriend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?â€ And he said to them, â€œTake care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for oneâ€™s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions.â€ Then he told them a parable: â€œThe land of a rich man produced abundantly. And he thought to himself, â€˜What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?â€™ Then he said, â€˜I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I will say to my soul, â€˜Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.â€™ But God said to him, â€˜You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?â€™ So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God.â€
