The story Jesus tells from verse 13 of Luke 12 is usually described as The Parable of the Rich Fool. The man in Jesus' parable is exceptionally rich. He has resources much greater than the average person. But he's completely unexceptional in his desires and goals. We can't write off this parable as a warning for the one-per-centers, the super wealthy. It's a parable for people who think getting more money is a life goal worth pursuing. And that is almost everyone of us.
