MORNINGTIME 3240 
 
And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, THAT HE DIVIDE THE INHERITANCE with me. And (Jesus) said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you (and all your worldly possessions)? And (Jesus) said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness, (fraudulency extortion: greediness, greedy desire to have more), for a man's life consisteth not IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE (physical) THINGS WHICH HE POSSESSETH. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods (physical things) laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those THINGS be, WHICH THOU HAST PROVIDED? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. FOR ALL THESE THINGS do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. BUT RATHER SEEK YE THE KINGDOM OF GOD; and all these things shall be added unto you. FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO. Luke 12:13-15, 19-22,29-31,34. A worldly person loves the things of the world because they have no understanding of anything else. Food, clothing, shelter and the like are all they know. And naturally so. And when someone dies, all his Stuff is argued and fought over. When your "rich uncle" dies, will you be heart broken IF HE LEAVES YOU NOTHING? If you go home from work and find everything you own has burned to the ground and gone up in smoke, how quickly before you can lift your hands to Heaven and declare, "I Praise You Lord in all these things, may I Lift up Your Name and You Be Magnified and You, Be Blessed"?
