Author Wesley Duewel wrote the following poem called, ďInvest Your Life for GodĒ:
Invest your time for eternity;
Invest your life for the life to be
Forever gone are the hours youíve lost.
Donít waste your life; count again the cost
Your money place in the Saviorís hand;
Itís only safe when on heavenís strand.
You never lose what you give to God,
But lose all else when beneath the sod.
Invest your work in the Saviorís plan;
Work hard for God and His will for man.
Donít count the hours that you toil and plod-
Youíll reap again all you do for God.
Donít waste your life for a passing joy;
Donít sell your soul for a fragile toy.
Give till it hurts; give your very blood-
You live but once; live all out for God.
That beautiful piece of poetry expresses well the great rewards awaiting those who redeem the time.
From Measure your life 1992 Zondervan.
