New Testament commentary on 21st Century America

Luke 12:16-21 (NLT)

Then he told them a story: “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!”’

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’

“Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”

I couldn’t help but see the similarity between the farmer’s barns and our overflowing garages, homes and rental storage units. I don’t know if this is fact or not, but I once heard that America is the world’s only country with a regular market for rental storage units.
