Story Time: One day (add a common girls name) and (add
a common boys name) came in from school and wanted a snack. Their
mother had baked a pie earlier in the week and there was just enough
left for each of them to have a slice. "Let's have a piece
of pie," suggested the little boy. "I'll get the
pie while you get us a glass of milk." When he sliced the
pie, it turned out like these two slices. One slice was much larger
than the other one. His sister poured each of them a glass of milk
and sat down at the table. When her brother brought the pie and placed
the small slice in front of her and kept the large slice for himself.
"Look what you have done!" she cried. "You
gave me the small slice of pie and kept the big slice for yourself."
"Well, how would you have done it?" He asked.
"If I were serving the pie," she said, "I
would have given you the large slice and kept the smaller slice
"Well, what are you complaining about? That's exactly
what I did!"
They both laughed and began eating their pie.
We might laugh at that story, but selfishness and greed is a very
serious subject. Every day we see people who not only want the biggest
slice of the pie for themselves, they want it all! Jesus told a
story about a man who was like that.
Read: Luke 12:13-21
The man in Jesus' story was very rich. He had a large, fertile
farm which produced very good crops. "What should I do?"
the man said to himself. "I have had such a large harvest
that I don't have room in my barns to store all of it."
What do you think the man did? (He kept it all for himself,
stored in a big Harvest Barn)
What should he have done? (He should have shared some of what
he had with those who didn't have very much.)
Do you think that is what the man did? (No)
No, instead he said, "I know what I will do. I will tear
down my barns and build bigger ones" Then I will say to
myself, 'You have plenty of everything. Enjoy it. Eat, drink,
and be merry.'"
God said to the rich man, "You fool! You will die this
very night. Then who will get everything?"
God is good and He has given most of us more than we need.
The question is, what will we do with what God has given to us?
Will we share it with those who don't have as much, or will we
greedily keep it for ourselves?
Remember the warning that Jesus gave to the listeners of his story.
"Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed."
The Bible says:
What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit
their soul? Mark 8:36
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths
and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store
up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do
not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
