Lukas 12: The parable of the rich fool


Someone in the crowd said to Jesus, “Master, tell my brother to divide his inheritance with me.” Jesus replied, “Who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you two?”
And he told them this parable: “The land of a certain rich man produced a bountiful harvest. The rich man thought to himself, 'What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.' Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I'll say to myself, You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.' But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
