Flee from Foolishness

All who are of God,

flee temptation’s snare;

let not foolish greed,

catch us unaware.

We are called to be,

content with His grace;

we brought nothing in,

take nothing from this place.

Godliness is great,

contentment brings gain;

flee from wickedness,

allow God to reign.

Faith and love endure,

gentleness will last;

fight the fight of faith,

release ugly past.

Take hold of the hope,

in eternal life;

to which we are called,

precious in His sight.


(Responding to I Timothy 6:6-12)


Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You are our Provider.  Forgive us for our foolish greed, and grant us a godly perspective when it comes to wealth.  Teach us to be generous and kind, and keep us from getting caught up in the wickedness of amassing wealth for selfish gain.  Help us to be content with what we have, and keep our focus on faith in You, as it is the only treasure that lasts forever.  May our faith, hope and gentleness lead lives to You, and may many come to hold their hope in You alone.  All glory and honor unto You.  Amen.
