The Rich Man and Lazarus (Part One)

“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.

No matter how diligently we seek it, no matter how tightly we hold it, no longer how long we have it, it fades with time as we come to realize that it doesn’t last forever. That perhaps had to be a thought that crossed the mind of the Rich Man as he begged for a drop of water amidst the pain of his torment and pleaded for a messenger to be sent to his father’s house, to warn his five brothers of his fate that they might repent and make right their path. In the world he had everything, and nothing bothered him much. Then why would it? He never had to worry about much, chances are he never knew hunger, to wonder where his next meal would come from or if it would even come. If he was ill he could see the finest physicians. He would dress in the fine
