heaps of turmoil

Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather! 

Psalm 39:6

I see the devastation

prosperity brings;

nice property and

the tyranny of things.

The untold suffering

of broken lives

is not relieved

with what money buys.

Yet I cravenly worship

gold, silver and gems;

forget The Lord and

turn against Him.

Bigger barns and fat accounts

might bring false confidence.

But there is a God

to Whom I answer in the end.

Wealth is an illusion

despite its glittering show.

What does a person gain

to have the world and lose his soul?
