They Will Perish

Show off your medals and
display all your trophies,
boast of your wealth
brag of your awards,
but remember in the end
you can't take them with you
when you stand before the Lord!

Shine your golden idols
and put them on a shelf,
stand them side by side...
if there's no room for Jesus
your treasures are worthless,
they will perish one day
along with foolish pride!

Exchange your prize possessions
for a priceless inheritance,
and everlasting reward,
purchased by Christ's blood,
paid in full for you and I
by our Savior and Lord!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
