In this world we seem to struggle to pursue "the good life". Steaks on the grill, a cold drink in hand, and the feet up on the porch seems like a pretty good deal. But in a parable relayed by Jesus, a rich man deals with the 'difficulty' of having such a successful agriculture business that he has more crop than his barns could handle. We should all have such a 'problem', right? It turns out he discovers this is not the worst thing that can happen as the Lord decides that his time on earth is up. Just when we think we've achieved the good life and it's time to eat, drink, and be merry - or relax - have we put our focus truly where it belongs?
