'''...And I will say to my soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry...'' God's response to the statement above was that
The statement in question is from the Bible, specifically Luke 12:19. In this passage, a man speaks to his soul, telling himself that he has plenty of wealth stored up for many years and should therefore relax and enjoy life. However, God responds by saying that the man's life will be required of him that very night, meaning that he will die and will not be able to enjoy his wealth.
Therefore, the correct option that matches God's response is: "his soul was required of him." This response is a reminder that our time on earth is short and that we should not be solely focused on accumulating wealth and material possessions, but instead prioritize things that have eternal value, such as building relationships with God and others.
