Treasure that Last Forever

If the pursuit
Of money is my aim,
Missed out on is
The true claim to fame.

It is the things of God
That truly satisfies
My soul forever
With the grand prize.

I’m freed by the treasure
From the scripture
Which is useful now and
Last forever.

Not dominated
By the pursuit
Of worldly riches
And all that loot.

Jesus is all I need
Every day I arise
For if I’m down
He lifts me to new highs.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    Had you rather be dominated by the pursuit of worldly riches or freed by the treasures of the Bible which are useful now and forever? Inspired by 1 Timothy 6, this poem promotes being freed by the treasure that last forever and is beyond measure.
