All of this tells us something basic about the interdependence of men and nation.Whether we realize it or not,each of us is eternally "in the red".We are everlasting debtors to known and unknown men and women.

All life is given of God, if you try to save it for your own selfish gain you will lose it

Jesus has just told a parable about a certain rich man. The rich man had more goods than he could store up, so he thought to himself, without being mindful of God, I shall build larger barns to bestow my goods. Then I will say to my soul, take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. Instead God said thou fool, this night, thy soul is required of thee, and to whom shall these goods be given? We have to remember God owns it all, and we are only stewards. We will have to give an account of our stewardship when we die. To whom much is given, much is required. It is wise to give those goods away while you are living, to the glory of God, and for the furtherance of His Kingdom. Beware of covetousness, for the life of a man does not consist in the abundance of the things that he has. Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, then all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33.

I feel it is telling us that all the riches you acquired during this life on earth will be completely worthless when you die. It also speaks to the fact that we know not the hour we are going to leave this life. Knowing this, I think we should put our focus on being ready for heaven at this time. Note that the passage said nothing about heaven or hell, but know you are going to one or the other for eternity. Believe me whatever you leave behind someone is going to enjoy it whether you like it or not.

I feel the Lord is teaching to store up your riches in Heaven, for on this earth your inheiritance is worthless unless you have inheirted the Kingdom of God through Jesus. That is the only true thing that matters for everything else will pass away.
