Covetousness

By Rev. Dean Beaty    6/1/08

 

Of what am I covetous?

Oer what do I make a fuss?

What is my main pursuit?

What will increase my loot?

 

This is my goal and aim.

This will increase my fame.

Covetousness is these and more.

The things I choose that I adore.

 

God calls them sin and shame.

They do not exalt His name.

These then must be set aside,

If in His favor we abide.
