A Luxurious life

In the Parable of the Rich Fool this person was materially blessed by God; his land “produced plentifully”. As God continued to bless the man, instead of using his increase to further the will of God, all he was interested in was managing his increase and accumulating his growing wealth. So the man builds larger barns in place of the existing ones and starts planning an early retirement. Unbeknownst to him, this was his last night on planet earth. Jesus closes the story by saying, “So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”Luxury is not about accumulating new things it is about noticing the things that we have. Luxury is not about what you have in your hand or in your house, but what you have in your head and your heart. Luxury has almost nothing to do with how much you are able to acquire but how much you are able to give away. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
