Episode #: 57   Parables  (Part 5: The man whom God called “fool.”) 

This episode, from Luke 12:16-21 in the Bible, tells the story of a man who seemingly had it all: money, possessions, status. However, he had some key flaws, and they were his undoing. He had Greed, but no Gratitude. Thanksgiving is a time to “count our blessings,” but it seems his blessings caused him fear and anxiety. Listen to hear Scott’s Thanksgiving greeting and learn how “anxiety replaces joy, or joy replaced anxiety, but they cannot co-exist.”

Word of the Day: greed (n.) a selfish state of always craving more and more, with no thought for sharing or of the needs of others

The story of the “Rich Fool” is the story of a man filled with greed but no thought of others or eternity.

Question of the Day: What is the difference between “saving” and “hoarding”?
