Long ago, in a kingdom far, far away, a rich king hired a "fool" to entertain him and make him laugh when he was sad. He gave the fool a golden scepter and told him that when he met a greater fool than he, to pass the golden scepter to that person.

Years passed and one day the king grew very ill. As he neared death, the king called for his "fool" wanting to be made to laugh one last time. "I'm going on a very long journey," said the king to the fool. "Have you made preparations and arranged for accommodations at your destination?" asked the fool. "No," answered the king. "I've been too busy and I didn't think I would be leaving so soon." The fool handed the king his golden scepter and said, "Sire, you are a greater fool than me since you have made no plans for your long journey."

I ask you gathered here, are you a fool? How big a fool are you? Have you made preparations for your journey? Do you even know where you are going?

From Gaither Bailey's Sermon: Where is Your Treasure?
