Parable of Our Lord in Luke12. The rich man's harvest was so abundant that he planned to tear down his old barns and build them larger. He calculated on having goods laid up for many years. "And I will say to my soul: ...take thy rest; eat, drink, make good cheer. But God said to him: Thou fool, this night do they require thy soul of thee." The moral is: "A man's life doth not consist in the abundance of things which he possesseth."
