"Because thou sayest,
I am rich, and increased with goods,
and have need of nothing;
and knowest not
that thou art wretched,
and miserable, and poor,
and blind, and naked."
(Revelation 3:17 KJV)

They've a house of finest fabrics:
Brocade couch and wingback chair,
Silken drapes, expensive carpet ~
But is Jesus welcome there?

The wife's shoes are all the latest,
With a brand name on each dress;
And the husband's suits are tailored ~
All about them spells Success.

But it's said she hits the bottle,
And sometimes he hits her, too,
And she's run out of excuses
When her skin is black and blue.

He's become a workaholic,
Goes in early and stays late;
When she nags, he always answers:
"Got a lot upon my plate."

She's convinced he has a girlfriend,
And she frequents bars to cry;
She spends money like it's water,
Anything that cash can buy.

They've a house with finest trappings:
Baby grand and leather chair,
Swimming pool, a fancy address ~
But is Jesus welcome there?


"For what shall it profit a man,
if he shall gain the whole world
and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give
in exchange for his own soul?"
(Mark 8:36-37 KJV)

I thing there people live just down the road from me. I don't envy them because I am far richer but I don't come into my riches until I inherit what has been set aside for me and paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ.
