On Guard Against Greed

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 6

Luke 12:13  (ID: 2184)

What is our top priority? For most of us, a quick glance at our checkbooks gives a clear answer. To demonstrate the dangers of greed, Jesus told a parable about a rich fool who stored up goods for himself but died before he could use them. Alistair Begg explains this parable, challenging us to examine our focus and to recognize that true abundance can only be found in the goodness and grace of Christ.

The Parable of the Rich Fool

13Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
