“But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’  Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”  Luke 12:20-21 NLT

Lord, I know that no one gets out of this world alive, and one day I will have to face You and give an account of how I spent my earthly life. Don’t let me be like this foolish man, Lord, who spent his life storing up earthly treasures for this world while completely neglecting his eternal home and savings account. Help me to be rich in good deeds, kind words, and acts of love. Help me to be sympathetic and empathetic to those around me who are hurting. Give me eyes to see them as You see them, and a heart that wants to make a difference in their lives. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
