16 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.
19 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.
20 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.
22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what
ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is
more than raiment.
the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor
barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?
25 And which of you with taking
thought can add to his stature one cubit?
If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take
ye thought for the rest?
the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you,
that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day
in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he
clothe you, O ye of little faith?
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither
be ye of doubtful mind.
30 For all
these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth
that ye have need of these things.
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall
be added unto you.
32 Fear not,
little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33 Sell that ye have, and give alms;
provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that
faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.
34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart
35 Let your loins be girded
about, and your lights burning;
And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he
will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open
unto him immediately.
are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching:
verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to
meat, and will come forth and serve them.
And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third
watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house
had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have
suffered his house to be broken through.
Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour
when ye think not.
IF you are NOT 100% certain (according to the Bible) that you are born again of the Spirit of Christ, and 100% biblically guaranteed a home in Heaven with Jesus Christ (as the Bible says, in "repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ"), then I invite and urge you to investigate and trust Jesus Christ and His Salvation above and beyond anything else.
