5-3-15 Consider Your Ways

street-signs

Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts;

Consider your ways.

Haggai 1:5 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Observe your life and look at what you’ve wrought.

Now take another look just to be sure.

Consider all your ills as well you ought,

And then consider looking for a cure.

You plant but don’t have plans to yield a crop;

You eat, but you are still not satisfied;

You drink but don’t enjoy the final drop;

You’re cold but then you dress in just your pride.

You earn but put your cash in bags with holes;

The more you look, the less that you do find.

Now ask yourself who sits at the controls;

The temple burns but you don’t seem to mind.

If what you’re doing doesn’t seem to fly,

Put Jesus in control – don’t pass Him by.

7-14-14 Nowhere to Lay His Head

foxes

If you would follow Jesus Christ the King,

You must be willing to lose all you own.

The Son of Man on earth owned not a thing,

Though ev’ry living creature’s home was known.

The Saviour was as poor as man can be

So that you might be rich as God’s elect.

He had no place to rest His head, you see,

To show there’s nothing here you should expect.

Believe that God will give you all you need

As Christ conforms to you both heart and soul.

Eventually you’ll learn as you concede

That pillows and a bed are not your goal.

To be like Jesus, drop all worldly things

To give your life to Him and all that brings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes,

and birds of the air have nests;

but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

Luke 9:58 KJV
