In Jesus’ parable, the poor man Lazarus, who suffered on earth, was “carried by the angels to Abraham’s side” to be comforted forever, whereas the rich man, who died after a lifetime of good things, suffered anguish. The wealthy are urged “not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches,” but “to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share.” Covetous desire is “a root of all kinds of evils,” while contentment belongs to faith, by which the Christian has great gain in godliness.
