Does it really matter

If we have the latest car,

But to compete and to covet

Is what drives us this far?

Does it really matter

If we have the finest clothes,

But our soul is clothed and covered

With much deception and loopholes?

Does it really matter

What the media portrays,

Since their lies and false statistics

Try to manipulate our ways?

Does it really truly matter

If we have such a face,

That can raise everyone’s attention

But the Lord we won’t embrace?

And does it really matter

If our bank account it bursts

But our heart is always bankrupt

As our desires do come first?

It really doesn’t matter

As the vanity of all these things,

Will dissolve and come to nothing

Along with the empty pain this brings.

The only thing that matters

Is to trust in Jesus Christ;

Surrender our heart and lives to Him

As His forgiveness will suffice.
