People's Bible Notes for Luke 12:18


Lu 12:18 There will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. In his enlarged storehouses. He will hoard his goods. Here was the beginning of his folly; to "hoard" his surplus instead of "using it" for the good of men.

Discussion for Luke 12:18

  • Nkosinathi Ngulube on Luke 12:18
    Surplus comes from God.The purpose of His abundant supply however, is NOT for me BUT for us.When it is for me, problems arise in the form of greed, wanton desire, selfishness, self righteousness etc.
