Wednesday with Words: Covetousness

I had another passage picked out for sharing today but this poem came our way in my son's Language Arts curriculum (he's in level 3) ,  This is one we should memorize - okay, I should memorize.

by Peter Idley

Covetousness hath never end,
And where is no end, is no rest;
Where is no rest, peace doth wend;
Where is no peace, God is a guest;
For God Himself made His nest
Where peace made his bower,
And there He dwelleth, our Saviour.

That pretty much says it all.

See what others are reading over at ladydusk.

  1. Ugh. Coveting is so easy to do and so difficult to correct. I love how it gives rest as a corrective and Jesus as an example. Thanks for sharing!
