At the mall we’re assailed by lights, trees, tinsel, ornaments, and all sorts of holiday cheer. What you won’t find is much about Christ, whose coming is the reason for the season.

We invest heavily in the few years we have on earth. But most of us invest very little in the life that follows after we die. In a parable, Jesus makes it clear that we need to reset our priorities and live now in view of the real life yet to come.

The parables of Jesus cut to the deepest level of human motivation. In the story of the rich fool, greed was one issue… but covetousness was another. None of us is free from the grip of wanting more. This sin can block our view of what’s really important: where we spend eternity.

In a parable, Jesus told of a man who had too much stuff and needed bigger barns to hold it all. The man’s error: assuming his stuff was all he needed. The man didn’t realize that he really needed something his barns could never hold.

Jesus told a story about a man who had a lot, but wanted a lot more. It was this man who said, “Eat, drink and be merry.” This parable of Jesus is chilling: that night the man’s his life was demanded of him. If there’s one thing you want to get right, it’s where you will spend eternity.

Jesus taught a lesson on ultimate investments in a parable recorded in Luke’s gospel. He counsels believers to invest in God’s kingdom, because only in the life to come will the true interest rate be on display.

In good times, stocks and bonds run hot. In shaky times, silver and gold look safer. In one of His parables, Jesus taught that the best possible return can only be had by investing our money for eternal dividends. In this, it’s true that “you can take it with you.”

Jesus told about a wealthy man who decided to fire a manager. Before he left, the manager cut some deals with his master’s creditors… deals meant to curry favor, giving the manager options once his job ended. Today, we decipher why Christ commended a man who acted improperly.

Jesus told of a great banquet. The invited guests all had excuses, so the banquet host invited the poor, the crippled, those who would never expect such a treat and who could never repay him. This parable shows us how we should tell people about the gospel.

Jesus told of a banquet where a lot of people did not show up. Their excuses did not amuse the banquet host, who then scoured the countryside for people to dine at his table. This parable is a picture of the offer of the gospel to a lost mankind.
