Another modern(ized) parable from the Good Book. Luke 12:16-21
The workers of the Detroit Donut shop had produced abundantly. A man went and bought three donuts in their “three donuts for a dollar after 4 pm” deal. After eating one himself and giving another to a friend, he thought to himself, “What should I do, for I have this extra donut?” Then he said, “I will do this: I will get a ziplock bag and there I will store it to enjoy tomorrow with lunch. And I will say, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for lunch; relax, eat, drink, be merry.” But God said to him, “You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the donut you saved, whose will it be?” So it is with those who store up donuts for themselves, but are not rich toward God.
This was my immediate justification for my desire to consume the remaining donut. I withheld, trusting the good Lord will not demand my life tonight.
