Jesus said to him, "Who appointed me to be your judge or to divide [your inheritance]?"
He told the people, "Be careful to guard yourselves from every kind of greed. Life is not about having a lot of material possessions."
Then he used this illustration. He said, "A rich man had land that produced good crops.
He thought, 'What should I do? I don't have enough room to store my crops.'
He said, 'I know what I'll do. I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones so that I can store all my grain and goods in them.
Then I'll say to myself, "You've stored up a lot of good things for years to come. Take life easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself."'
"But God said to him, 'You fool! I will demand your life from you tonight! Now who will get what you've accumulated?'
That's how it is when a person has material riches but is not rich in his relationship with God."
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "So I tell you to stop worrying about what you will eat or wear.
Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes.
Consider the crows. They don't plant or harvest. They don't even have a storeroom or a barn. Yet, God feeds them. You are worth much more than birds.
