Wrong Direction

Men think they can ignore God
and pursue their destiny,

little do some understand
how futile that can be!
Many find their pot of gold
but what a price to pay 
when they face their maker
on the judgment day.

Obsessed with earthly riches
and things money can buy,
instead of lasting blessings
from God's treasure trove on high!
Accumulating more and more
to add to their collection,
following the broad road sign
in the wrong direction!

Yet God has posted warnings
so men wouldn't go astray,
but life is like a magnet
that keeps drawing them away!
Help them grasp the truth Lord
and give them eyes to see,
plus ears to hear You calling
them to the cross at Calvary!

Matthew 7:13 "Heaven can be entered only thru the narrow gate.  The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide eough for all the multitudes who choose its easy way.  But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and only a few ever find it!
