Raymond A. Foss Poems

Biblical Economics by Raymond A. Foss

So many stories, lessons, out of his love
the son, come to earth, to bring us home
to mend the breach created, our estrangement,
our distance from God, the creator, our father
So many tellings, of one story
our wanton desires, serving other god
chasing after our wealth, after power
losing sight of our neighbor, our brothers,
our sisters on this earth
focusing on the lesser things,
the things that rust and turn to dust
when we should treasure eternal life
and walk more humbly on the way
Caring for our neighbors,
those who need our love, our help
storing treasure in heaven
for a future, walking the streets of gold

“No man can serve two masters:
for either he will hate the one,
and love the other; or else he will hold to the one,
and despise the other.
Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
