Godly Contentment

Be content with what you’ve got and to it add the ways of God.

If your aim is to be rich, your quest could fail, and that’s a bitch.

Further, wealth’s a fickle goal that hounds your heart and saps your soul.

Better far to shun all this, pursuing love and gentleness.


Faith alone is where you fight to take hold of eternal life. 

That confession you once made remains until this day the best. 

By the God who gives us life we call that you should follow Christ,

Keep commandments blamelessly until Christ Jesus’ coming day.


As for those already rich, remind them there could be a switch.

Fortunes, safety, earthly things, but not the riches Jesus gives. 

Wealth that’s true is doing good and sharing everything they could.

Treasure stored in heaven high will yield the living that it should.
