If you want to know what life means,
You have to take a long-term view;
It doesn’t have to end in earthly death –
A perfect new body waits for you.
Life can be eternally yours if
You let your mind grasp what is true:
The short-terms gains which we know on Earth
Should be counted loss, you fool!
Every material hoarder and greedy sinner,
Cheats the lives of those who lose –
But these losers shall be eternal winners,
If they take to heart our God’s good news.
A view investing in the Lord’s kingdom,
Minds and bodies put to God’s best full use,
To seal eternity with Him in heaven,
Not the wages of death bought through abuse.
