TRUE ABUNDANCE

Lk. 12:16 "And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."

What happened to the men of old,
With nothing to call their own;
They had no earthly wealth,
Heaven…their only Home?

Abundance…Yes, they had it,
And, have it now…still;
That abundance is "spiritual",
With it…they were filled.

Why do we try to amass,
A pile of superficial things;
Things we can't take with us,
Surface and shallow…it rings!

Not the abundant life,
Our blessed Saviour gives;
Why are we so very carnal,
When…in the Spirit…we could live?

For me…I've had enough,
"Things" will never take the place;
Of all He has for me,
And, attainable…by His grace.

For…it's His ability IN ME,
His very life…within;
The Source of abundance,
Eternal life…did win.

Our choice to make…daily,
This exchange we do make;
Will it be all He offers,
Or things we've amassed…but cannot take?

There comes a day for each of us,
Those things held dear…lay down;
And, will anything remain,
Let's pray…only that golden crown.

The crown of Life…He's given,
Eternity…with Him;
And, He gets all the glory,
It began and ended…with Him.

We'll take that golden crown,
And, lay it at His feet;
Our God shall be all…in all,(1Cor.15:28)
In Him…we are complete!
