What gives us security? Family, finances, friends, etc.. We all love our families and friends and having an income but what if it was all taken away. What would our security be? Do we believe in God to provide or do we take it upon ourselves to believe that we are actually in control of our security. The parable in Luke is a great picture of this.
And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’
“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. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’
“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?’
“This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
