Buying or Selling

Are you buying what you’re selling?
Does it sit upon your shelf?
Is your faith for your amusement?
Or will you share with someone else?

Is it only for display?
Does it serve no other purpose?
Are you buying what you’re selling?
Would you say it’s worth the purchase?

If it’s only for good feelings
Then it does not serve the Christ.
Then this faith is not a bargain
None should buy at any price

If you won’t consume the product
Your belief you cannot share
Then indeed you cannot sell it
It’s on the shelf, just leave it there

Matthew 13:44-46
Hidden Treasure
44 “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

A Costly Pearl
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, 46 and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
