The Example He Gives - Andrew Fuller

It is worthy of special notice, that when our Lord had warned his followers to take heed and beware of covetousness,(Luke 12:13-21) the example which he gives of this sin, is not of one that was a plunderer of other men's property, an unfair dealer, or an oppressor of the poor; but of a certain rich man whose ground brought forth plentifully; and whose only object appeared to be, first to acquire a handsome fortune, and then to retire from business and live at his ease.
