Luke 12:16–21

16 And he told them a parable, saying, wThe land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, xWhat shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops? 18 And he said, I will do this: I will tear down my ybarns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up zfor many years; relax, aeat, drink, be merry. 20 But God said to him, bFool! zThis night cyour soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, dwhose will they be? 21 So is the one ewho lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.
