07 Jul Luke 16:22

22 “Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried In Hades.”  

Both men received their reward. The rich man in Hades, also known as hell, tormented and in pain. Lazarus, comforted at Abraham’s chest in Heaven. Do you think the rich man was surprised at where he ended up? Nothing he had acquired on earth helped him at all in Hades. What does this parable teach us? Think about how we should live our lives in Christ – a wealthy show off or a humble servant?
