NIRVNew International Reader's Version
16Then Jesus told them a story. He said, "A certain rich man's land produced a good crop. 17He thought to himself, 'What should I do? I don't have any place to store my crops.'
18"Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my storerooms and build bigger ones. I will store all my grain and my other things in them. 19I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things stored away for many years. Take life easy. Eat, drink and have a good time." '
20"But God said to him, 'You foolish man! This very night I will take your life away from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
21"That is how it will be for anyone who stores things away for himself but is not rich in God's eyes."
