Consider the godly wealth that is yours. Luke preaches discipleship ~ what it means to be a follower of Christ. Jesus Christ wants us to feel secure ~ a spiritual security. The Lord wants us to have peace, based on His love for us, not in what we have accomplished or accumulated. This scripture contrasts the person who is seeking security by gathering a bit more vs. the person who finds peace and satisfaction in seeking after the things of God. The Monster Called More ~ Greed ~ does motivate people.
Once there was a burglar who was caught and brought before a judge. He was found guilty. The judge asked the man if he had anything to say before he was sentenced. He said, “Well, you know, Your Honor, it’s like this. The more a man has, the more a man wants”. The judge replied, “Is that so? Well, I tell you what. I’m going to sentence you to 15 years in jail. How many more would you like?”
