A loaf of bread or vanilla yogurt,
While fresh, can sure be tasty!
But never eat them past their date,
You might turn pale and pasty!
A catalog sale or store coupon,
Hold great value to us who shop!
But if you wait too long to use them,
Your savings'll go flat, like pop!
When you sign on the dotted line,
Your contract is iron-clad.
But if you choose to default on terms,
You'll lose the good name you had.
If you drive when your license is old,
Your right to drive may be taken.
And you shouldn't take expired meds,
Or you could end up sick and shakin'!
Magazine subscriptions and memberships,
Eventually run out of time.
Like parking meters out on the street,
When you forget to add more dimes!
Address forwarding lasts just six months,
Better to update family and friends.
Even your life is just a vapor,
And like your mail, may come to an end.
This whimsical way of sharing advice,
Somewhat silly, but oh, so true,
Is meant to point you toward things that last,
And will eternally benefit you!
The Father, the Spirit, and the Son,
Are yours by grace, and they're free!
And if you believe Jesus died for you,
You'll seal a life-long guarantee!
The things of this world just don't last,
Here today, then tomorrow are gone.
Only God knows our expiration dates,
When our time on Earth is done.
Friend, Heaven is a place that's real,
A perfect home where we can stay.
Where the streets are gold and the Son always shines,
And time never passes away.
