If you aren’t attending our United Church Bible study, you are missing out. We meet at 11:00 a.m. Thursday morning in the Pastor’s Study during summer and now that September has arrived, we’ll be back in Grace Chapel. It’s a Lectionary Bible study and so we look at the lectionary passage that I will be preaching from the following Sunday. We have thoughtful and fun conversations. Sometimes we get off topic, but we always find our way back to scripture.
We recently had a detailed discussion about, “The Parable of the Rich Fool.” You may recall that this is the man who has land producing abundantly and so he pulls down his barns and builds larger ones. He stores up his grain and his goods with the mistaken belief that he is set for years. He proclaims that he will, “relax, eat, drink, be merry” (Luke 12:19b, NRSV).
We talked about this passage being an example of greed. We talked about it in terms of being discontent with what we have. But we finally settled on the idea that this passage is mostly about a false sense of security. The man was placing a great deal of security in what he had stored up and how all would be good for many years to come. What he didn’t realize was he didn’t have many years left; he didn’t even have any days left.
Where do we place our security; in bank accounts, or the stock market, or with our possessions, or perhaps our favorite political leaders? I believe with all my heart we have no real security apart from our relationship with the Lord. I hope that’s not a surprise. I don’t want it to be disappointing. In fact I shared in worship and do so once again as good news. We belong to God. What could be better? Come to Bible study and let’s discuss.
Safe with the Lord,
SUNDAY WORSHIP SERVICE - 10:00 a.m. All are welcome!
