You can’t love God and Money 

This scripture rings loud in my ear

As I listen to the arguments of children

Arguments over the value of one dollar

The impoverished mind scrapes for change

And I’m watching thinking somethings got to change

Because the uproar that went up over this dollar was unprecedented 
In a capitalist society what frees the mind

From the clenched talons of the dollar 

He was free

He was empowered

He wanted to show them there was more to life than that dollar 

But they tried to put it back together again
Is that what we do with our sin

Whatever you offer your body to becomes your master

Is this what we look like when liberation comes

Are we taping together the peices of what once held us captive

Are we holding on to the things that we need to simply throw in the trash…
