Luke 12:13 - 21
And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the
inheritance with me.
And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?
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.
And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth
And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to
bestow my fruits?
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.
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.
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?
So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
Matthew 6:19 - 21
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where
thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and
where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
