RE Verse reading–Luke 12:13-21, 16:19-31, James 5:1-6 (day five) “So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God” (12:21) Taken together, the parables of Luke 12 and 16 give a sobering list of mistakes possible for people as blessed as we are. Remember that fool translates moros –“a person who reaches inacurrate conclusions re. spiritual or moral truth”. Just a beginning. . .It is foolish to always want more (12:15) It is foolish to miss the blessing of God and the obligation it brings (12:17) It is foolish to think that peace comes from possessions (12:18) It is foolish to be unprepared for eternity (16-whole story) It is foolish to spend wealth for self and not service (16–whole story) Blindness to these issues is, for Christ, a moral category. He believed that we could all see these things clearly if we were willing and that we are, therefore, accountable to God if we fail to. What a foolish move that is!
