The Number of Barns Doesn't Matter

Came across this from Doug Wilson as I prepare for this Sunday's sermon, based on Jesus' teaching in Luke 12:13-21:

“We are invited (in numerous places in the Scriptures) to consider our earthly lives in the light of our ultimate destinations. The rich fool is not encouraged to say or think, ‘Well, I know I am lost for all eternity, but for a while there I sure had enough money to build some bigger barns!’

This vantage of eternity (and only this) gives us genuine perspective on our lives.”

(Against the Church, p. 88).
