There Is No Profit ~

There is no profit,
to be made . . .
all earthly wealth
will rust and fade.

There is no gain,
to be gotten . . .
all worldly things
will just get rotten.

There is no future,
to be obtained . . .
all earthy wealth
can’t be retained.

There is no hope,
to be secured . . .
all worldly things
will be obscured.

There is no profit,
in worldly things
no earthly wealth . . .
can salvation bring!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust doth
corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

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.

Matthew 6:19-21

 


Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shutter with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

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.

Lay Your Treasure ~

Put no value in the things,
living in this world brings
for they will only just corrupt
and in the end self-destruct.

Lay instead your treasure,
in things you cannot measure
things like faith, hope and trust
for they’ll never turn into rust.

Put no worth in material things,
things like cars and diamond rings
for that which we now hold dear
will one day all just disappear.

Lay up instead things eternal,
and the things that are internal
things like morality and integrity
against which there is no penalty.

Put no value on worldly things,
instead lay in your heart of heart
the things that will in the end . . . .
not corrode, rot or fall apart!

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through
and steal:

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.

Afternoon Ponderings ~12.03.19~


I Came Into This World A Sinner ~

I came into the world,
with not one single thing
and when I go to see Jesus
there’s nothing I can bring.

For, my treasures on earth,
will rust from corruption
but, in heaven they’ve been
everlasting from conception.

I have a lot of stuff,
making my life comfortable
but, they are all to God . . .
worthless and corruptible.

For, God has for me,
eternal life as my treasure
where peace and joy
will flow without measure.

I came into this world,
as a sinner, but I will leave
as someone who in Jesus
has trusted and believed!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust
doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

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.”

Storing Your Treasures ~

If you store your treasures,
in heaven up above . . .
you will become wealthy
in peace, joy and love.

If you are poor,
in a world full of richness
you will be loaded
in hope and forgiveness.

If you are pure,
in thought and in deed
your spiritual assets
will exceed all you need.

If you are merciful,
around the smugly proud
your heart with God’s grace
you will be endowed.

If your treasures,
aren’t worldly plush
the ones in heaven
will be forever flush!

~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

“Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break
through and steal:

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.”
