Today’s Church

What the Divine has set aside for blessings,
Churches have turned into goals.
“The more the merrier,” they believe.
Fill the pews, fill the bank accounts,
And fill the week with programs.

Our primary goal should be this:
To make disciples by growing in faith,
Then all else will fall into place.
The Lord will bless those who seek after Him,
And not those after personal glory.

The blessings He has set aside
For a pure church, a true church are this:
Increase in numbers, wealth, and influence.
Remember: these are not for vain gain
These blessings are to further His Kingdom.

Remain humble in the sight of the Lord
And all these blessings will be multiplied again and again.
“Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness
and all these things shall be added unto you” Matthew 6:33.
