Treasure Beyond Measure

What brings purpose to your life? Is it to live for God and do what He wants; to understand how things work and to share with others so that their path to understanding is made easier? Is it a desire to have spiritual communion and be strengthened each day? Are the things of God your treasure? Do you ask God for help and dream of the possibilities?

In Acts 17:1-15, Paul found it to be much easier to share about Christ when the listener desired to believe. The lesson is to stimulate interest so one is eager to examine for themselves the priceless principles found in the scriptures. Hopefully, this poem will do just that.

Step Ahead

Living for His glory
Is so very fulfilling
Stimulating interest
In what is thrilling.

Where the path to insight
Is there for many
Leading to the way
Of a life with plenty.

Asking God for help,
Dreaming each day
Of what is possible
When following His way.

Spiritual communion
Strengthened beyond measure
Since the things of God
Are our treasure.

A life of purpose,
Living for His Glory,
Doing what He wants,
This is our story.
