The Big Boat, the Big House

We strive so much, so often,
for that big house, the big boat,
the toys, the excess of the world
gold, where the heart is, all too often
losing sight of the important, the worthy
the calling we have, to live as Paul said,
as he told Timothy, the young priest
to live, to live a life, worthy
to be as God would be,
as love would dictate
with faith like Abraham,
righteous, under the law,
and the good news
