Some of us may hear today’s Gospel reading and think: ‘Well, what is so wrong with that?’ In a lot of ways, the actions of the man in the parable make sense. He has had a good harvest (presumably a result of his own hard work) and is making provisions for the future – building bigger barns to store his crops, ensuring he has enough to live on for the coming years, allowing himself to enjoy the fruits of his labour. He is living the dream! He is a good businessman, he has achieved security in life, so why shouldn’t he celebrate.   Yet God brands him a ‘fool.’ Why? As it turns out, the man is to die very soon. He certainly can’t take all his treasure with him. He has not thought beyond his own enjoyment. He is living only for this life, without any thought for the bigger picture.  Jesus warns: ‘a man’s life is not made secure by what he owns, even when he has more than he needs.’ Furthermore, there is no indication that he considered sharing his wealth with anyone else. Has he helped anyone else?, or has he left the world a better place?
