Are You Rich Or Are You Poor? ? ... - Poem by Sharon Maree Smith
Yes...I look around..and There is a lot I see
Many people living in a state of luxury
'Luxury? ' they say..'but alas..we are poor'
Complaining about this and that and..'now we need more'
Let us take the pharaohs..and the kings in ancient past
They had less comforts then..than in this century last
A feather was used to fan them..servants so very near
Today..press a button..cool air is instant here.
The 'help'..they were there..worked hard to make their food
Preparing what is pleasing to their taste and to their mood
Today it is the same..but they just sit and only ring
Then someone rushes over..to the door their food they bring.
Not many need to labour..to grow their food today
They just have to walk right in..and the food all on display
But again You had it written..You had already seen and known
in an earthly sense this means..'you will reap what others have sown'.
Do they even realise what riches they have today
Do they sit and thank You..even take the Time to say?
Do they know trust in their riches..happiness this won't bring
I've seen some happier people..that do hardly have a thing.
Psa lms 49: 16 Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; 17 for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him.18 Though while he lived he counted himself blessed- and men praise you when you prosper- 19 he will join the generation of his fathers, who will never see the light of life.20 A man who has riches WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING is like the beasts that perish.
