Watch Out!

Background passage: 1 Timothy 6:6-19
Daily reading: Luke 12:15-21

Focus passage: Then Jesus said to them, “What out! Guard yourself against all kinds of greed.  After all, one’s life isn’t determined by one’s possessions, even when someone is very wealthy.” Luke 12:15

The parable that follows verse 15 is about a wealthy man, who in his abundant return on his harvest only looks for ways to store up everything for himself.

Instead of turning to God or to trusted members in his community as to what he should do with his bounty, he talks to himself in a most comical way.

Where is there bounty in your life?

Do you take time to ask God how to allow that bounty to become a means by which you are able to enrich other people’s lives?

Prayer: God help me to embrace the bounty you have placed in my life today.  Amen.
