- Luke 12:13-21 King James Version 
- And one of the company said unto Him, "Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me."
And He said unto him, "Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you?"
And He said unto them, "Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth."
And He spake a parable unto them, saying, "The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: and he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?' 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. And I will say to my soul, "Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry."'
"But God said unto him, 'Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?'
"So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
