Riches Or Jesus???

Riches Or Jesus?
You know that another year is ending.
What kind of lifestyle
 have you been spending?
Does it just seem like
"you're walking on a cloud."
"Everything's going good."
 You're very proud!
You have a family, three cars,
 and much wealth.
Not counting all of your friends...
 Plus good health.
Have you thought about who made
 all of this possible?
Jesus!  You may find this
 to be "improbable."
The Bible says that every good
gift is from God  on high.
His word is true  Don't listen to a lie!
It's surely not just because of you
 that you have all of this.
To go along in life, rather
"happy and bliss."
The next time you're heading
 out your front door.
Think about the meaning of life. 
And what you're here for!
Lay your treasures up in heaven...
 and you shall find.
A godly contentment.  True joy.
 And a peace of mind.
The blessings of God... 
In you...  He wants to pour.
Give what you have to him... 
And then you'll have MORE!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
