2-2-15 Foolishness

foolishness

There are some folks you preach the gospel to

That shake their heads and laugh about the cross;

No matter what you say or what you do

They’ll call you such a fool, no more than dross,

And you will have a friend that’s not been saved

Who spends less time with you if you are bold;

He may be more refined and well behaved,

Yet he’ll believe you’re gullible and sold.

Don’t be dismayed, but weep for them instead,

For they know not the joy that could be theirs.

The power that brought Christ back from the dead

Can through their faith make them celestial heirs.

You cannot save a drowning man at sea

If he would rather drown than be pulled free.

~~~~~~~~~~~

For the preaching of the cross

is to them that perish foolishness;

but unto us which are saved

it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV

12-5-14 Treasure

TREASURE-CHEST1

Of all the years the Lord has given you,

What have you spent your time preparing for?

Retirement and then an ocean view?

The time to then improve your golfing score?

Then when you have acquired stocks and gold,

A day will come when you’ll need it no more.

Prepare instead for things not bought or sold,

A treasure of the soul no vault can store.

Give love to all you meet, seek nothing back,

Pick up the Word of God and then explore;

Spend time in prayer, accept the Lord’s feedback,

And then tell all the gospel, let it pour.

What treasure will you store, what is your joy?

Will what you save can moth and rust destroy?

~~~~~~~~~~~

19.“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,

where moth and rust destroy,

and where thieves break in and steal. 

20.“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,

where neither moth nor rust destroys,

and where thieves do not break in or steal;…

Matthew 6:19,20 KJV
