What Money Can't Buy ©

Money Can Buy
A job, but not accomplishment.
A house, but not a home.
A pet, but not a friend.
Medicine, but not health.
Decorations, but not happiness.
A ring, but not love.
A book, but not a story.
An education, but not knowledge.
Glasses, but not sight.
Toys, but not fun.
Clothes, but not beauty.
A piano, but not a song.
Paper and pencil, but not words.
A bed, but not sleep.
Food, but not a meal.
A window, but not a view.
Money is the car, but not the driver.
Nor can it buy what Jesus has already purchased for us;
1) Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the water, and he that hath no money: come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.
2) Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto Me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
3) Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.
OH Thank God that thru Jesus Christ, I'm saved and made rich:
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich.
II Corinthians 8:9
For no amount of money can buy the righteousness that Jesus Christ gives us freely:
For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.
II Corinthians 5:21
