Do We Have An "I" Problem?

In the parable of the rich man (Luke 12:16-19), we see that the rich man had a definite “I” problem. Notice in this text that the personal pronoun “I” is repeated six times, indicating an attitude of selfishness and covetousness (Luke 12:13-15 – Note the parentheses around each “I” for emphasis).

And he thought within himself, saying, What shall “I” do, since “I” have no room to store my crops? So he said, “I” will do this: “I” will pull down my barns and build greater, and there “I” will store all my crops and my goods. And “I” will say to my soul….” (Luke 12:17-19).

Do we have an “I” problem today like those folks had in the first century?
