Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Luke 12:16-21

Jesus spoke a parable to the crowd:

The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully.

The rich man (thought within himself): What shall I do, because I have no room in which to store my crops?

This is what I will do: I will pull down my barns and build greater ones; and I will store all my fruits and my goods in them.

And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have much goods laid up for many years; take your ease and eat, drink, and be merry.

God (to the rich man): You fool, tonight your soul will be required of you:

then whose shall those things be, which you have provided?

So is he that lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
