The Biggest Fool

March 31, 2008

“…You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?” – Luke 12:20

Jesus Christ tells of the biggest fool. “A certain rich man was very productive and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do since I have no place to store all that I have?’ He decided to tear down his barns and build larger ones and then store all his grain and goods. Then he said, ‘I have many goods laid up for years to come; now I’ll take it easy and eat, drink, and be merry!'”

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life is required of you and now who will own all that you have?’ So is the man who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”

Question: When are you going to pause long enough from pursuing bigger barns and dreaming of how to fill them up, to start thinking about your soul? All that counts is “Do you know God?” and “What have you done for God and your fellow man?” Quit playing the fool and get things right with God through Jesus Christ. And do it today!
