The world says make good grades in school.
Jesus says know the Golden Rule.

Choose the job that will pay the most,
Or bless you to the uttermost?

Maybe you need to relocate.
Jesus says stay on the way that's straight.

Keep working your way to the top.
Work for the Lord and never stop.

Look for a job that pays you more.
A servant's role God has in store.

In the stock market now invest.
Treasures in heaven meet the test.

Buying real estate's a good thing.
Bigger barns don't happiness bring.

Use all you time to reach your goal.
A day of rest's good for your soul.

Save money for a rainy day.
Seek God's kingdom first is the way.

Budget your money, needs and fun.
Tithes and offerings should be done.

Riches will bring you happiness.
Obey the Lord and He will bless.

Worldly possessions, get all you can.
Heaven's riches, a better plan.

Having more money makes you win.
The love of money is the root of sin.

The world's advice may not be bad.
God's advice, the best to be had.

This was such a clever poem. I loved the way you contrasted the two lines. It really helped make your point that there are two ways in this world, the world's way or God's way. The way you formatted this poem really drove your point home without coming off as preachy.
