Worthwhile Fears and Holy Storage

Sermon Notes

  1. (13-15) This should be obvious but it bears repeating. Do not demand judgment from God.

  2. (16-17) Unfortunately, we are seldom aware of our abundance yet frequent lay aware of what we lack.

  3. (18-19) Most of us spend the majority of our lives navigating with self-guidance, and yet so little time discerning what may be required of us. Be careful; do not miss the discernment.

  4. (20-21) This text is not primarily concerned about your financial planning, rather, this text is primarily concerned about us capitalizing on our many opportunities. Make sure your life includes a purpose that is bigger than your own demands.

Luke 12:13-21

Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”

14 Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” 15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
