Hearses don’t pull trailers,
loaded with earthly treasures
they don’t tow your worth
or your worldly measures.
They don’t carry the living,
with their prized possessions
they only bring along coffins
to the grave side processions.
You can’t take it with you,
all you’ve acquire will turn to rust
what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.
You can’t haul away your stuff,
there’s no place in heaven for it
one day all you own and love
to the world you’ll have to forfeit.
There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
but, you can lay up your treasures
if you read and apply God’s verse.
So, don’t cling onto the things,
that you have saved up and stored
let go of them and turn to God . . .
and your soul He will reward!
King James Version
“But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Deborah Ann Belka
