  • Thank you for sharing this! I was at the grocery store and a gentleman asked me if I would be willing to teach a class at his church so they can save for a much needed van. I think your presentation is very clear and clean looking and I think that it is going to help me not forget anything...and I will give you credit.

I'll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I'll have room enough to store everything. And I'll sit back and say to myself, My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!' "But God said to him, 'You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get it all?' "Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God." <br />
