Luke 12

KJV King James Version 1769

Christ preacheth to his disciples to avoid hypocrisy, and fearfulness in publishing his doctrine: warneth the people to beware of covetousness, by the parable of the rich man who set up greater barns. We must not be over careful of earthly things, but seek the Kingdom of God, give alms, be ready at a knock to open to our Lord whensoever he cometh. Christ's ministers are to see to their charge, and look for persecution. The people must take this time of grace, because it is a fearful thing to die without reconciliation.
