    • Parable Harvest Of The Rich Man
      What Shall I Do
      Luke 12-16
      SYNOPSIS:Parable of the Harvest of the Rich Man. What was his greatest sin? It was not greed or not caring for the poor. It was something more basic than that. We must learn to know what is life, and what is death. If God is an abstraction to us, we take our own counsel as the rich man did, and choose death over life.
    • The Harvest of the Rich Man, and the Deep Heart. Who are you, and what does your life consist of? (mp3 format)
    • Luke 12:16-21 : Psalm 65:6 (Sept)
      SYNOPSIS:Man was made to know God and even to contain God within his deep heart. A manís life consists of completely and only this. The parable of the Harvest of the Rich Man shows a man who does not know who he is, or what his life consists of, who squanders his deep heart (Ps 65:6), numbering his produce and asking counsel only from himself. Letís discuss what a manís life consists of and what he can and cannot possess and the things in life that he should and should not number.
