Christ Told the Parable of the Rich Fool

               Luke 12:13-21

Jesus taught us to have faith in God, not

riches.  The rich man thought he was prudent,

but he was not a very good student.

He wanted to store a good harvest and

not let it go to waste.  He was worldly.


Christ wants us to be more than practical.

We should strive to be more spiritual.

We should be ready to die every day.


Any of us fools could learn from these schools.
