A good story can communicate truth like few other things. Jesus was a master storyteller who used parables to explain truths about God and living in a way that honors Him. In this series, we'll learn from some of the parables of Jesus about the life that He invites us to live.

The Rich Fool

Greed tries to re-make us in the image of what we own, which is empty and wholly unsatisfying. Worship of God leads us to freedom as those made in His image.

Greed creeps into our hearts and consumes us with what we can accumulate. It makes us a prisoner of the things we think we possess, but really take possession of us. Generosity and being rich toward God are the ways out of this trap.

Scripture: Luke 12:13-21 (ESV)
