Read Luke 12 today.

This chapter includes Jesus’ conversation with a man who was concerned about wealth and his inheritance. Jesus sought to explain that a relationship with God is more valuable than any earthly wealth, because all earthly wealth is temporary. I believe it was Jim Elliot who said, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”
What are the things most valuable to you? A way to do a self evaluation is to answer a couple of questions. What takes up most of your time? Of which things would you be most upset if someone suggested you permanently give them away?
The man with whom Jesus was speaking needed to make some adjustments to his priorities. What adjustments might we need to make?
Luke 12:13-21 NLT
Then someone called from the crowd, “Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father’s estate with me.”
[14] Jesus replied, “Friend, who made me a judge over you to decide such things as that?” [15] Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”
[16] Then he told them a story: “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. [17] He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ [18] Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. [19] And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!”‘
[20] “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’
[21] “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
