Material or Spiritual?
We can choose to live in a material world
where we’re all about acquiring more stuff.
Such a choice will leave us feeling empty,
for that life will never be enough.
We could spend our money on the trappings
created to entice every woman and man.
Or we can help to extend God’s borders
and choose to offer Him the required ten.
Life shouldn’t be about what we’ve got,
but more about what we can give
that will help to further the cause for Christ,
so others can learn how to joyfully live.
We can choose to live in the spiritual world
with God the Father as our center,
and live according to His will,
having His Son, Jesus, as our Mentor.
