To make it big we should realise

That we first need to be small…

To acknowledge that Jesus Christ

Is King and Lord of lords.

Society’s ways are opposite

To our holy God indeed,

And what’s considered as successful

In God’s eyes is just a weed.

It’s a weed when it’s not watered

By the infallible Word to grow;

Where humility is our blanket

And where blessings we can bestow.

What does it profit a man

To gain the world but lose his soul,

When deceptive tactics grasp the heart

And where idolatrous lies are told?

Corruption, greed and mismanagement

Are part of the parcel as well,

When we eagerly crave fame and success

But pave our way to hell.

What’s the point in the end

When we’ll all stand before our judge?

Will it matter whether we had a mansion

And all good things that we once indulged?

Since it’s the character of our soul

That will pay high dividends,

And the treasures that are inside our heart

And if with God we made amends.

To make it big we need to understand

That there is a spiritual realm,

And that life on earth is short indeed

Where disruptions can overwhelm.

Our resting place is the same size

But what’s important is our soul;

As to whether it belongs to Jesus Christ

Or whether satan had strongholds.

To make it big we need humility

Since our God is majestic indeed;

He exalts the humble and humbles the exalted

And to this we should take heed.

Materialism is not sinful

But it’s the love of money that is…

It’s what we focus on and what’s in our heart

And our motives when we give.

It’s the simple things in life

That make the most impact of all;

It’s when we’re obedient to the Lord

When our name He calls.

And although we may have little skill

God can work in wonderful ways,

When we place our heart and soul in all

And give God the glory and praise.

As nothing will ever compare

To the eternal joy we’ll receive;

Let’s prioritise and put things into perspective

And do not be deceived.
