The Rich Man

Luke 16:19-21

19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

It seemed the rich man had it all and the poor man had nothing. The rich man never had to worry about food, but the poor man would had been satisfied with the crumbs from the table. The rich man had it made. Then death came and the one thing he needed he lacked. He needed to be ready for heaven, but he had neglected to prepare. The poor man who had nothing was prepared. In this life he had nothing, but in the next he was given everything. The moral of the story, worry about if you are ready for the next life. We spend to much time trying to get riches and fine things. They will all fade away. The next life is eternal. Do not be the rich man who gained it all in this life only to have nothing in the next.
