Luke 12:16
Context
The Parable of the Rich Fool

13And one of the company said to him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14And he said to him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15And he said to them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses. 16And he spoke a parable to them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18And 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. 19And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have much goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20But God said to him, You fool, this night your soul shall be required of you: then whose shall those things be, which you have provided? 21So is he that lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
