Don’t be greedy

A man came to Jesus and asked Him to make his brother share the inheritance from their parents. Jesus told a story about a farmer.

In Jesus’ story there was a farmer who had a great year and grew lots and lots of crops. He grew so many that he didn’t have room in his barns to store them all so he planned to build more barns to fit his crops in. The farmer didn’t think about God in all the plans he was making. Sadly, this farmer died that night before he could build the bigger barns.

Jesus said the farmer in this story didn’t think about God or what would happen when he died, he only thought about his crops and building bigger barns to store them in. Jesus told the people listening that it’s more important to store treasures in heaven than on this earth.
