Trust God, not money! The rich farmer in Jesus’ parable placed his hope and confidence in the accumulation of wealth. God judged him as a fool and his life was demanded of him. Watch out! Be on guard against all kinds of greed. Storing up earthly treasures will not make us safe, but faith in the Savior Jesus Christ lasts eternally!
