Me? Rich?

I was reading Luke 16.19-31 today, the story Jesus told of the rich man and Lazarus. Normally, I would indentify with Lazarus. I'm not rich, am I? I don't ignore the needs of people around me, do I? I am a needy person, aren't I? But today, I thought that maybe I am the rich man. I do have so much. I do need to be much more concerned about people in need around me. I need to be much more diligent about the use of my resources and much more aware of justice issues. The cost of being the indifferent rich man is high. Read the story.
