15 Our days on earth are like grass;
like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
Proverbs 103:15 (NLT)
I read this scripture just after I completed a post about charity work in question. I remember that Jesus told the Parable of the Rich Fool in Luke 12:13-21. In fact soon after he told the parable, He taught the disciples not to worry about what they will eat or wear.
I will leave you to read Luke 12:13-21 and let the Lord speaks to you:
Parable of the Rich Fool
13 Then someone called from the crowd, “Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father’s estate with me.”
14 Jesus replied, “Friend, who made me a judge over you to decide such things as that?” 15 Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”
16 Then he told them a story: “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. 17 He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ 18 Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. 19 And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!”’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’
21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
