The Choice


Passing pleasure,
Lasting treasure...
Shall I sell eternity
For the latest on TV?
Walk the devil's dirty road?
Bear the Savior's holy load?
Live by lusting
Or by trusting?
Grab for glory all my own
Or draw near to God's own throne?
Lord, I'm here at your command.
Make me faithful. Make me stand.

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the LORD your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. --Moses, in Deuteronomy 30:19-20

It is a choice we must make daily, whether to put God first, or our own pleasures.

Great poem.
