Luke 12:13 - 21


12:13 - And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me.

12:14 - And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?

12:15 - And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

12:16 - And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

12:17 - And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

12:18 - And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

12:19 - And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

12:20 - But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

12:21 - So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Matthew 6:19 - 21


6:19 - Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

6:20 - But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

6:21 - For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
