"Lilies and sparrows don't trust in 401Ks. Jesus talked about the foolish people who build these huge barns for all their stuff -- then they get more stuff and build even bigger barns to hold all that new stuff. Then -- well, you know the story. Earthy security doesn't lie in the stuff of this earth that moths destroy and thieves steal -- and markets can collapse upon. No."
