Covetousness Denounced

13 Someone ain the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me." 14 But He said to him, "1Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over you?" 15 Then He said to them, "2Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions." 16 And He told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man was very productive. 17 "And he began reasoning to himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?' 18 "Then he said, 'This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, 3you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry."' 20 "But God said to him, '4You fool! This very night b5your soul is required of you; and 6now who will own what you have prepared?' 21 "So is the man who 7stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
