Please keep all those affected by the tornado’s throughout the midwest, in your prayers. God bless and thank you!
Then one from the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.”
But He said to him, “Man, who made Me a judge or and arbitrator over you?”
And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for ones’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”
Then He spoke a parable to them saying:
“The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully.
“And he thought within himself, saying, ‘What shall I do, since I have no room to store my crops?’
“So he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.
‘And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.” ‘
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’
“So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
Luke 13:1-9 There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
And Jesus answered and said to them,
“Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things?
“I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.
“I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”
He also spoke this parable:
“Then he said to the keeper of his vineyard, ‘Look, for three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none. Cut it down; why does it use up the ground?’
“But he answered and said to him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and fertilize it.
‘And if it bears fruit, well. But if not, after that you can cut it down.’ “
I am also including a prayer request with this post. We will be attending the funeral of the fourth family member in less than a year tomorrow. Thank you friends and God bless you all.
