Luke 12:13-34, Luke Timothy Johnson

It is out of deep fear that the acquisitive instinct grows monstrous. Life seems so frail and contingent that many possessions are required to secure it, even though the possessions are frailer still than the life. Only the removal of fear by the persuasion that life is a gift given by the source of all reality can generate spiritual freedom that is symbolized by by the generous disposition of possessions.
