Keep our Eyes on the Lord

History tells us of societies
Going in the wrong direction
Trying to make it on their own
Losing a spiritual connection

The thinking is no need for God
To build things on their own
Tower of Babel comes to mind
As they relied on themselves alone

In many ways we are the same
Today we want the best car
The biggest house
To be a film star

The government thinks
They can run health care
Provide for our needs
And clean the air

But only God provides it all
His way is the best way
So develop a skill
And earn your pay

Find your purpose
And be real smart
But rely on God for
The amazing part

He can take talent
And shine the light
Use it for what is right
Take you to new heights

So attention to God first
Doing great things with His aid
Building things with His guidance
As His principles are conveyed

    In the study of Genesis 11 a while back, the thought was about how society thought they had all the answers. They depended on themselves rather than on God. It’s not much different today and so this thinking inspired a poem. Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends!
