Jesus shares a parable about a rich fool, warning against greed and being self-centered. The relentless pursuit of material possessions is a powerful distraction from growing an intimate relationship with Jesus. When we become self-absorbed, we neglect to pray, study God’s word, and prepare for Jesus’s return. Nothing that may be accumulated on earth is as valuable as the eternal riches we have in God’s kingdom. Will likely use the story about the difference between dime-store pearls and the real deal.
