Lent 13

Contentment

Every time I enter the mall
I have an expectant sense
That there might be
Something here that I need.

Something there,
If I looked carefully
Or searched long enough
Or asked the right question,
Would improve my lot in life.

For all my shopping,
The only thing
I can never find at the mall
Is contentment.

Matthew 6:19-21 (NIV)
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
