Hi!, How was your prayer time today?.
.Ok! Here we go!. This is the Bible reading for August 5 from The One Year Bible for Kids Challenge Edition!

A Rich Fool
Jesus! told this story to show why we shouldn't worry too much about money and our possessions.

Parable of the Rich Fool

Then someone called from the crowd, "Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father's estate with me."

Jesus replied, "Friend, who made me a judge over you to decide such things as that?" Then he said, "Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own."

Then he told them a story: "A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. He said to himself, 'What should I do? I don't have room for all my crops.' Then he said, 'I know! I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I'll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. And I'll sit back and say to myself, "My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!"'

"But God said to him, 'You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?'

"Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God."

The rich man in this story was proud of his money and the things he owed. But as he found out when it was time for him to die, all his wealth and possessions would be useless to him after he was dead. New clothes, new shoes, or the latest computer games cannot make us truly happy. They can't last. Places your trust in things that do last, like the Kingdom of God!

Proverbs 28:25
Greed causes fighting;

trusting the Lord leads to prosperity.

And thats our Bible reading for today! OK! BYE!
