Luke 12:19 In-Context

17 He began to think to himself, "I don't have a place to keep all my crops. What can I do?
18 This is what I will do,' he told himself; "I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, where I will store the grain and all my other goods.
19 Then I will say to myself, Lucky man! You have all the good things you need for many years. Take life easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself!'
20 But God said to him, "You fool! This very night you will have to give up your life; then who will get all these things you have kept for yourself?' "
21 And Jesus concluded, "This is how it is with those who pile up riches for themselves but are not rich in God's sight."
