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.
