Don't Make Bread Your Goal

When Jesus was tempted to turn stones into bread.

He quoted the truths the Father had said.

That, “Man shall not live by just bread alone.”

Defeating temptation, He left stone as stone.


“They that will be rich, fall into temptation.”

Most who are wealthy, miss God’s invitation.

The things of this life have become their goal.

Neglecting salvation, no time for the soul.


The things of this life will all pass away.

And all of your gold will perish some day.

Lay up your treasures in heaven alone.

Yield not to temptation, making bread out of stone.


This world will tell you, “Gain all that you can.”

Making gold their God, throughout their life span.

Don’t envy this world but heed what God said.

Do not make your goal, the getting of bread.


Sure Jesus could have turned stones into bread.

But He chose to obey the Father instead.

If it’s your desire to nourish the soul,

Don’t make the mistake of making bread your goal.
