Luke 12:20 NASB "But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is demanded of you; and as for all that you have prepared, who will own it now?’"It was and still is a day I watch my back! My family loves to play practical jokes on each other, this day April Fools Day! I am not sure how it got started but there have been many times when I find myself playing the fool and coming away with a learning experience! Today's verse has some pretty strong words concerning death and how we are not to be foolish and realize that all we have cannot be taken with us when we die! Some of the foolish pranks played on each other have gone to the extreme, but the stories we've shared afterwords brings us laughter and joy recounting how we each pulled it off. We never know when or how the pranks will be played but they will be. God will call each of us home, we may not know how or when but we all face death and the things that we have accumulated in this life will not be with us. I would rather build up treasures in heaven than on earth - those will be there and the others will be left behind! Don't be foolish, live ready to see Jesus face to face at any time on any day! peace, tom
