Vanity of Vanities
Intelligence becomes cunning and abusive, without moral wisdom,
Which is self-knowledge and self-control!
Happiness is elusive, without loving kindness and forgiveness;
Without true concern and care for each other,
Worldly charity that claims recognition is but affectation;
Wealth can corrupt by leading to self-indulgence or immoral passion!
Power without righteousness and compassion
Can gives rise to malice and exploitative!
All, all are vanity of vanities!
Sadly we often forget
The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom!
Life is temporal, like grass that withers,
Flowers that fade;
So look to the immortal, the immutable,
The Almighty YAHWEH and JESUS, HIS MESSIAH,
To deliver us from evil temptation!
To lead loving, gentle and humble lives!
