BECAUSE HE LOVED HIM

Because he loved him,The Master bade the rich young manSell all he had.Sorrowful, sad, this ruler turned awayFrom Soul's security to goldOf lesser sort—earth weighted, transient, cold.He would have learned, if he had followed then,The joy of sharing with his fellow menAll heaven's treasures—Spirit's gifts,Sincerity and peace and power.True health and love would then have filled his hourWith pure, eternal good.To follow well we must leave chaff for wheat.Because God loves us, He would have us walkWith Him. unite with TruthAnd win a royal crown, a living diadem.
