No price too high

Solomon made all these things in great quantities, for the weight of the bronze was not sought.
2 Chronicles 4:18

when God is the object
the value doesn't matter
because infinite worth
is in His worship
and what I give
will never match
His priceless grace

why does my heart object
to sacrificial matters?
I cry and give birth
to excuses and let slip
hoarding hands won't give
what little I have
I negotiate

but giving means letting go
of my material possessions
things that seem to matter now
are not comparable
to eternal life
the joy of my Lord
and all He bestows

I need to stop counting so
much... stop the obsession
with the cost and just bow
to my incomparable
Savior... end strife
trust His true word
and all that He shows
