Is it all really worth it
The five minutes worth of fame?
As compared to eternity
In which Jesus Christ will reign?
Every drop of sweat and tears
As the hunger for more mammon,
Leaves the soul so desolate
As the heart suffers great famine.
The priorities are incorrect
Craving much success and praise,
And blinded to the truth of life
As vanity leads the way.
The desire for more luxuries
And to have better than the rest,
Creates unnecessary sacrifice
Leaving family members stressed.
There is so much potential
To live only for God’s glory,
But the deceitful cares of this world
Creates many boastful stories.
There’s no room for self-proclaiming gods
Or inflated egos too,
To usurp our God’s authority
Which is pure, holy and true.
True fame comes from the heavenly realm
As God exalts those who are meek;
To be His hands and feet on earth
And His heart to always seek.
