Good words from Lecrae

Lecrae is definitely my new favorite hip hop artist.

His newest album, Rebel, has been in heavy rotation on my playlist for weeks.

One of my favorite tracks is called “Don’t Waste Your Life” (based on the Piper book).

You can view the full lyrics to that here.

Below is my favorite verse:


Yeah do it for Christ if you trying to figure what to do with your life

if you making a lot money hope you doing it right because the money is Gods you better steward it right

stay focused if you ain’t got no ride

your life ain’t wrapped up in what you drive

the clothes you wear the job you work

the color your skin naw you Christian first

people living life for a job

make a lil money start living for a car

get em a house a wife kids and a dog

when they retire they living high on the hog

but guess what they didn’t ever really live at all

to live is Christ yeah that’s Paul I recall

to die is gain so for Christ we give it all

he’s the treasure you’ll never find in the mall

Your money your singleness marriage talent and time

they were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine

What would my life be like if I believed that Christ is the only Treasure my heart is really after, and everything else in my life is a tool He’s given me to display His worth?


  1. The song’s great. One catch I’ve got, you need to add a “never” towards the end … “he’s the treasure you’ll NEVER find in the mall!”

    Go holy hip hop.
