Store up treasures in Heaven

while here on earth below.

For wherein lies our treasure,

there is our heart also.


Let us not be blinded

by the world, and led astray

like Judas, the disciple,

who for silver did betray.


 By choosing silver over Christ,

poor Judas, foolishly,

betrayed his Lord, with a kiss

and sealed his destiny.


Many, as did Judas,

learn that greed comes with a price,

when one’s great love of money

exceeds their love for Christ.


Such greed will but destroy

 the soul and cause lament.

 like the thirty silver pieces

  that Judas never spent.
