A good name is worth more than wealth,
Respect is much more valuable than gold;
Just as important maintaining good health,
Evenly crucial are spiritual values to hold.
The Lord is the Creator both rich and poor,
Both of them take chances in their lives;
But a wise man is not tempted by a lure,
Following a righteous path as he strives.
The reward with having a gentle spirit,
As long as you have the fear of the Lord;
For wealth, honor and life as you inherit,
When you are abiding within His Word.
Potholes and detours obstruct the sinful,
But the righteous watches over the soul;
As he by-passes on a road for the faithful,
That has free access and having no toll.
If a child is trained right from the start,
He will follow the righteous path in life;
As the Word will be engraved in his heart,
Keeping him from having too much strife.
