The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus. Everything in life is a trade. How do we always make good trades?

Parable of the Rich Man and LazarusLISTEN NOW

Synopsis: The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus is quickly explained, then we talk about the important and frightening words: "Remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented." Our Lord is giving us an immutable principle, which we can use as a sort of mnemonic device to judge everything we do. This is difficult without much change, and the Apostle Paul offers the way to accomplish this massive task of proper trading: "I am crucified with Christ: neverthless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God"
