A gold fool

RE Verse reading–Luke 12:13-21, 16:19-31, James 5:1-6 (day three) “I will pull down my barns and build larger. . .I will store all my grain. . .I will say to my soul. . .relax. . .be merry.  And God said. . .You fool!” (12:18-19)  Proverbs has much to say about fools and their folly.  “He who spreads slander is a fool.” (10:18)  “A fool is right in his own eyes.” (12:15)  The Scripture (all parts) strongly denies that all decisions are equal.  All roads DO NOT lead up the same mountain!  This is a foolish way to think re. medicine.  Got cancer?  Take Nyquil.  Nonsense!  Why do we believe it re. philosophy and ethics?  All choices are not equal.  Jesus said a person is a fool to ignore eternity.  A person is a fool who uses all of his resources for himself and remains unconcerned and uninvolved with the needs of others.  Like the old saying goes, “There is no fool like a gold fool”. . .or something like that.
