Sleekest Curves

Sleekest curves of steel,
Graceful as a swan
But hard as a sniper,
Call you to enter
The sellers' temple.

     Enjoy the display,
     The merchants' array.
     Buy all you need,
     But check your greed.

Enter, but beware.
The soul you sell
May be your own.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil,
and by craving it, some have wandered away from the faith
and pierced themselves with many pains.
(1 Timothy 6:10 HCSB)

Your life should be free from the love of money.
Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said,
I will never leave you or forsake you.
(Hebrews 13:5 HCSB)

Amen, Jim.

There is a lot of pressure to fall into that trap.

So very true. We need to be on guard, even when doing normal things like shopping - not that the thing, whatever it is, is bad, but to be aware that we are entering the realm of the prince of this world; he will try to appeal to everything in us that craves worldly baubles, but he has no power over us...unless we let him.
