"What about someone who says in front of others that he knows me? I tell you, the Son of Man will say that he knows that person in front of God's angels.
But what about someone who says in front of others that he doesn't know me? I, the Son of Man, will say that I don't know him in front of God's angels.
"Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven. But anyone who speaks evil things against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
"You will be brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities. But do not worry about how to stand up for yourselves or what to say.
The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say."
Someone in the crowd spoke to Jesus. "Teacher," he said, "tell my brother to divide the family property with me."
Jesus replied, "Friend, who made me a judge or umpire between you?"
Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against wanting to have more and more things. Life is not made up of how much a person has."
Then Jesus told them a story. He said, "A certain rich man's land produced a good crop.
He thought to himself, 'What should I do? I don't have any place to store my crops.'
"Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my storerooms and build bigger ones. I will store all my grain and my other things in them.
