I suppose I can if I must.
Surely a good thing this is not,
It goes against what we’ve been taught.
What does the Bible have to say?
It wasn’t good then, back in the day.
The lust of the flesh and the eyes,
The pride of life it decries.
Just to look with wrongful desire
Puts you in danger of Hell’s fire.
Most of the TV ads you see
Strongly appeal to vanity.
Things you do not have, you desire,
Become determined to acquire.
The lust to obtain becomes so strong
There is no thought of right or wrong.
Determined to have your own way,
Not heeding what others may say.
Even if others it may hurt,
Without care, we our will assert.
The desire to look important,
And worldly achievements to flaunt,
Is not the way to please the Lord.
He wants by us to be adored.
Maybe you think that you don’t lust.
Perhaps your thoughts you should adjust.
Ask the Lord to reveal to you
Any way that this could be true.
This is the way to joy and peace.
Wanting your way, to God, release.
Seek first His kingdom everyday.
He’ll hold your hand along the way.
