The Foolishness of Selfishness      Luke 12.16-21

Sunday Evangelistic Service . 16th May 2021
The parable of the Rich Fool teaches us the consequences of selfishness and covetousness. The soul cannot live off the things we gather from this world - it needs that blessed relationship with God.

Luke.12.16-21And he spake a parable unto them, saying, 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? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 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? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
