True riches do not have price tags

Or something that you can buy…

Since all material possessions

Will one day be left behind.

It’s the treasures deep in our soul

As we exhibit the spiritual fruit,

Of love, peace, joy and kindness

With goodness and patience too.

It’s the richness when we give birth

And that overwhelming love;

That captures our heart and soul

As we hold our treasure from above.

It’s when our spouse looks us in the eye

Followed by a passionate embrace;

It’s the richness of becoming one

With loving kindness and grace.

It’s the riches when we reach out

To serve somebody in need;

It’s the kindness that we exhibit

As we pray and intercede.

It’s the riches when we receive Jesus

And discover the meaning of life;

Being sealed by the Holy Spirit

And becoming the Bride of Christ.

True riches can never be bought

Since God freely gives to us all,

And the richest most precious decision

Is to respond when our name He calls.
