I was in San Francisco a few months ago enjoying lunch, as I was finishing my meal, a young man approached me….

Young man: “Excuse me sir, I am sorry to bother you, but you look familiar, I think you might know my father.”

Me: “What is his name?”

Young man: “His name is Andre Jackson, I am his son Andre Jr.”

Me: “It is a pleasure to meet you Andre, does your father happen to have a sister named Antoinette”?”

Andre Jr: “That’s my Aunt!”

Me: “Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve seen them, how are they doing?”

Andre Jr: “They are both doing well, they live in Oakland now.”

Me: “When did they move to Oakland, they love San Francisco.”

Andre Jr: “Around two years ago, I was the one who advised them to move.”

Me: “Why is that?”

Andre Jr: “Because SanFrancisco is planning on being one of the biggest resorts in the world by 2035.”


Andre Jr: “Yes, I am one of the coordinators on the project, we have been planning this for years, and it is finally coming to fruition.”


Andre Jr: “Yes, but there is one problem, we must get the existing tenants out first. We need to make room for the resort, the influx of visitors will add more wealth to the city.”

Me: “How are you going to get the existing tenants out?”

Andre Jr: “We higher the standard of living for everyone.”

Me: “Did you say everyone?”

Andre Jr: “Everyone that can’t afford to stay!”

Then he said to them, “WATCH OUT!” Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

Luke 12:15
