gratitude for the coin – v2

the symbols in scripture
in the parables of Jesus
deep, rich lessons
words to guide, to teach us
in God’s holy word

we are to have
gratitude for the coin
for our salvation
not jealous of others
who like us have eternal life

all of us are sinners
all of us deserve death
the wages we actually earned
in our walk on earth
paid on the cross

we must be grateful
for each new believer
for all who receive salvation
all who claim the name
of our risen Lord Jesus.
