“And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:17 What shall I do? - The very language of want! Do? Why, lay up treasure in heaven.
12:20 Thou fool - To think of satisfying thy soul with earthly goods! To depend on living many years! Yea, one day! They - The messengers of death, commissioned by God, require thy soul of thee!
Lu 12:18 There will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. In his enlarged storehouses. He will hoard his goods. Here was the beginning of his folly; to "hoard" his surplus instead of "using it" for the good of men.
