Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Great riches hold no attraction,
for realistically speaking,
it's not for untold luxury
or opulence I'm seeking.

A little comfort has appeal...
I would first update my car,
a little bus to take my scooter
(the present one won't get far).

Make things easier on my children
by lifting their mortgage load...
then I'd probably have a diet cola
and another for the road.

I would update electronic equipment
which I use for Fishers of Men-
laptop, printer, projector,
then upgrade my own again.

The remainder would be invested
to assist in this work with the needy.
To splash out any more on fancy stuff
would be senselessly, stupidly greedy.

I'm richer by far than old Croesus
with wealth even greater than Gates
and the secret of my great contentedness
is that Jesus and I are best mates!
