The Deception of Greed

To be trapped and not even know it
That is a perfect description
Of how to play the fool.

Why is it so hard to see?
Why do I look anywhere other than Jesus,
To find peace?

Every time I search around
I play the fool
And it is not just me who suffers
-it is those I care for as well.

“Do not covet,” it says
And do I hear?
“Clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus…”
Do I listen?
