HIS MODERN IDOLATRY (EXODUS 20:4-6)

Gathering more trains to sell,

His last batch—who can tell…?

Paying back funds

From impulsive runs,

Idolatry to quell!

Spent his living collecting,

Holy Spirit rejecting

His need for stuff

And debtor’s bluff,

Reason and conviction upon reflecting!

Honest appraisal of needs

To have a train set succeed…

Needn’t sell all

But humbly fall,

On knees obedient in deeds!

Accumulation to his hurt,

And his family’s budget burnt…

Being restored

From going overboard,

Must prove the lesson he’s learnt!

Enough trains are left to play,

“Railroad” for many a day…

Having fun

Under the Holy One,

Priorities reestablished toward God’s way!
