The Main Thing

The Main Thing

Churches they do so much today – they do most everything.
The main thing is: do they still keep the Main Thing the main thing?

Churches will give to charity. Good works they are doing.
But the main thing remains: is the Main Thing still the main thing?

They feed the poor. Visit the eld. And take youth groups camping.
And I wonder: do they keep the Main Thing the main thing?

Church volunteers are so busy! Their tasks never ending!
So do we ask? (We must.) Is the Main Thing still the main thing?

They take in large collections: everyone is donating.
Yet we must ask: do they yet keep the Main Thing the main thing?

They sing music and Christian songs. They consume much teaching.
But the main thing I ask: is the Main thing still the main thing?

They meet for bible studies, lenten fasts, and prayer meeting.
Did they forget only to keep the Main Thing the main thing?

The Main Thing is ‘The Gospel’: are Church deeds this attesting?
For if they aren’t, we know the Main Thing isn’t their main thing.
