Rich Fool

A parable of a wealthy man who cannot escape death

English Translation

Top:“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed.” (Luke 12:15)

Left: The Lord Jesus told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”‘ “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.” (Luke 12:16–21).

左侧:主耶稣用比喻说 有一个财主田产丰盛 自己心里思想说 我的出产没有地方收藏怎么办呢 又说 我要这么办 要把我的仓房拆了 另盖更大的 在那里好收藏我一切的粮食和财物 然后要对我的灵魂说 灵魂哪 你有许多财物积存 可作多年的费用 只管安安逸逸地吃喝快乐吧!上帝却对他说:无知的人哪 今夜必要你的灵魂你所预备的要归谁呢?凡为自己积财 在上帝面前却不富足的也是这样 路加福音十二章十六节到二十一节
