Life is God’s gift that we can offer back to Him.
Hold out Things worth Taking
by Brenda Drake
Hold out things worth taking, give good things away.
If you hold out junk then it will with you stay.
By the world’s standards it may seem good,
But by God’s measure it may not be as it should.
Good advice is worth keeping – give it away;
A good word others will gladly receive each day.
In God’s kingdom to give is to receive
So give away what it is that you need.
Hold out kindness – you will find you are kinder too,
Hold out compassion and it is added unto you.
Sing praise and you will be praised for what you have done.
Hold out things worth taking and you are held by God’s Son.
Life is a struggle but do not hold on too tight,
Offer it to Jesus as a sacrifice.
A sacrifice worth keeping; well used by God above;
For your life is a testament of His love.
God offers life everlasting, gladly it receive.
He held out salvation; you saw and believed.
He came and drew you to His touch.
He offered you joy and peace and you opened up.
Hold out the invitation God held out to you,
And others will come to the wedding feast too.
Remember this word, and the Word will before you stand.
When you reach out He will take your hand.
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measur
