Your Treasure

"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Luke 12:34

Where is your treasure?
Does it lie in pleasure?
Is it wrapped around a car?
Is it near, or is it far?

Perhaps it is gold
Silver or clay mold
But whatever it's value
Will it always be around you?

Can you carry it through life?
Throughout the toils and strife
It's value, can you save?
Can it last past the grave?

If not, then your heart will pursue
An item that has no value
Chasing something of waste
Not satisfying your spiritual taste

Choose the eternal instead
The everlasting bread
That the Father above has given
To those who believe he is risen

For the things of this world will pass
And all of the pleasures won't last
But in Christ all things stay new
But in Christ all things stay true

Because eternity is his
And all who remember this
Will find their heart's desire
And there treasure forever acquire
