Beholden to His Things – v3

He was Possessed by his possessions
beholden to his things;
He was sad in facing our Savior
when he was told what he must do

He was Unable to let go of his possessions
to sell his earthly treasure;
He was not willing to focus on a future
creating treasures for eternity instead
