Store up things for heaven not for oneself: Lk 12:18-21: Reflection by Prayer Aid

`This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." "But God said to him, `You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' "This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God."  Luke 12:18-21

It is the mercy of God by which we are prospered.  It is the mercy of God that we are safe and free from serious illness or grave concerns.  God wants to give us more than He already has.   Sometimes  our attitude to think firstly, lastly and in-between only of ourselves, can block every blessing of the Lord’s.   God has filled our lives with great abundance for us to enjoy AND for us to share with all those in need.  That is the only reason He gives us so much.  Let us begin to share today, all that He has blessed us with.
