Life Does Not Consist in the Abundance of Possessions

Everyone knows that a preacher doesn’t get into any faster trouble than when he starts talking about money… Jesus talked about money a lot! In today’s reading Jesus is actually interrupted by someone in a financial dispute with his sibling. Jesus uses it as an opportunity to warn us about greed. We may feel we are greedy but then again, how rich are we towards God?

Key text: Luke 12:13-21 (NRSV)
