Just some thoughts:
PROBLEM WITH THE I’LL’S AND SELF
Once upon a time a man had a problem.
“The farm of a certain rich man produced a terrific crop. He talked to himself. ‘What can I do do? My barn isn’t big enough for this harvest. I’ll gather in all my grain and goods, and I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones.Then I’ll gather in all my grain and goods, and I’ll say to myself. Self, you’ve done well. You’ve got it made and can now retire. Take it easy and have the time of your life.”
Luke 12:14–19 The Message
My barn— I’ll gather–I’ll tear down—I’ll gather—I’ll say to myself—Self… “You got it made.”
Interesting how many references to self. If one reads further one might note how the man was referenced and how a change of plans came his way.
