Parable of the Rich Fool
Let's say this again in modern terms: A leader of a company found himself proud that he had built up such a large and prosperous corporation. He said, "I could become even more profitable if I tear down this building and build a new state-of-the-art headquarters. This company will be so well run, it will run on its own for years and years. I will be able to retire a few years from now, draw my pension, and finally relax for once in my life." God says, "While you were busy building your company, you neglected to do the things I asked of you, because you were concerned only with yourself and your needs. When you are gone, will your company be so powerful that it will save your soul?
