2-12-15 On Finding and Losing

Jesus-washing-feet

If you think carnal life a splendid thing

Without acknowledging the Savior’s role,

If you admire your hedonistic fling,

You’ll find your life right here but lose your soul.

How tragic choosing tin instead of gold,

To throw away the altar for the gift!

Instead, stand up for Jesus and be bold,

For corporeal life goes by so swift.

Eternity is more than meets the eye

To those of us who choose the life divine.

We serve the Lord and seek the by and by;

To lose our lives for Christ’s the starting line.

What choices will you make this mortal blink?

The time has come; it’s later than you think.

~~~~~~~~~~~

He that findeth his life shall lose it:

and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

Matthew 10:39 KJV
