The rich man foolish, restless happy about what he had but wanting more in his garner even more silos barns brimming for himself an over abundance
But worthless empty value a different equation when the accounting came the Lord at his door the threshold of his life crossing to the other side
The scales unbalanced one side empty when it should be brimming that which we have shared, stored up in heaven for that fateful day, rather than our houses, our barns full, yet empty worthless in the end.
