The Parable Of The Rich Landowner Who Was A Fool

19 Then I'll say to myself, "You've stored up plenty of good things for many years. Take it easy, eat, drink, and enjoy yourself."' 20 But God told him, "You fool! This very night your life will be demanded back from you. Now who will get the things you've accumulated?' 21 That's how it is with the person who stores up treasures for himself rather than with God."
