Wealth

Wealth "20 People who have wealth but lack understanding are like the beasts that perish. ” Psa 49:20 NIV A man who possesses riches Without accompanying understanding Will perish like the beasts of the earth; A short life that’s not everlasting. He will join the generation Of his fathers that went before; Sleep forever in a tomb; No princely mansion above to score. “Do not be overawed,” David the Psalmist said, “When a man grows rich.” He’ll take nothing with him in death Where all is black as pitch. When he lived he counted himself privileged But that privilege he squandered; Kept it all for his own glory; To God’s glory never pandered. Riches are a responsibility And a blessing from the courts above. God’s blessings are to bless others To demonstrate God’s love. So when they come without understanding They serve for a very short time, To give glory to self alone And not to our Lord, Divine! Why squander the privilege of eternity In exchange for a quick fix here? The honor of men is worthless; Just a few words spouted into thin air. Man’s splendor may bring him glory, But only for such a short while. To lose out on eternity Is the greatest self-denial! © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com
