Luke 12:13-21

ESV 13 Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." MSG 13 Someone out of the crowd said, "Teacher, order my brother to give me a fair share of the family inheritance." ESV 14 But he said to him, "Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?" MSG 14 He replied, "Mister, what makes you think it's any of my business to be a judge or mediator for you?" ESV 15 And he said to them, "Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions." MSG 15 Speaking to the people, he went on, "Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot." ESV 16 And he told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man produced plentifully, MSG 16 Then he told them this story: "The farm of a certain rich man produced a terrific crop. ESV 17 and he thought to himself, 'What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?' MSG 17 He talked to himself: 'What can I do? My barn isn't big enough for this harvest.' ESV 18 And he said, 'I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. MSG 18 Then he said, 'Here's what I'll do: I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I'll gather in all my grain and goods, ESV 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.' MSG 19 and I'll say to myself, Self, you've done well! You've got it made and can now retire. Take it easy and have the time of your life!' ESV 20 But God said to him, 'Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?' MSG 20 "Just then God showed up and said, 'Fool! Tonight you die. And your barnful of goods - who gets it?' ESV 21 So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God." MSG 21 "That's what happens when you fill your barn with Self and not with God."
