You Can Take It with You

Centuries ago Christ Jesus put forth a parable to teach a great lesson on the subject of covetousness. According to Luke he said, "The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: and he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?" Luke 12:16,17; The parable then relates that the rich man decided to build greater barns for storing his wealth and to take life easy, to "eat, drink, and be merry." Then comes the warning, "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?"

How true it is that material wealth must eventually be left behind! Only spiritual riches, such as the qualities of joy, peace, harmony, which comprise the true nature of man made in God's image and likeness, can be taken into the kingdom of heaven.
