The Rich Fool
Luke 12:13-21
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  April 30, 2017

Jesus had much to say about money. Sixteen out of thirty-eight parables deal with how to handle money or possessions. While the Bible contains approximately 500 verses on prayer and less than 500 verses on faith, it contains more than 2,000 verses dealing with money and possessions. Why is this topic so important? Money is one of the greatest sources of anxiety, can become our god and steal our heart. In an attempt to teach a young man the proper place of money, Jesus shares with him this parable of the rich fool.
