A Christmas Comment

Christmas may bring gifts galore,
All your heart is wishing for,
All you want and maybe more...
all the wrappings.

You may own a mansion grand,
Lots of money, lots of land,
Lots of folks at your command...
in earth's trappings.

What's beneath your Christmas tree?
Count the presents that you see:
Does that spell Prosperity?...
be deluded.

Christmas-time is always rough,
Running, shopping, buying stuff,
How to know when it's enough?
God included?

God so loved the world He gave,
Sent His Son down here to save
Folks from sins that would enslave...
should He bother?

Rubies, gold and diamond rings:
That's just stuff that Santa brings ~
The best things in life aren't things!
the Father!


For what shall it profit a man,
if he shall gain the whole world,
and lose his own soul?
Or what shall a man give
in exchange for his soul?"
(Mark 8:36-37 KJV)
