He didn’t say the rich would get
The first place in the queue
He didn’t say your entry fee
Was based on what you do
It’s better to be who you are
And come just as yourself
So cease from piling all your works
Upon  your sagging shelf.

The poor, bereaved and meek of heart
Will be His chosen ones
For they have loved Him for Himself
He’s proud to call them sons
Remember, it’s not what you do
But what The Lord has done
That is the key to everything
Your freedom has been won.

  1. Thank you! Wanting to be a teacher, I can completely understand foregoing riches for a career that might bring me joy. Its hard to explain to others but reading is helps put it into words for me.

  2. Mike, very thought-provoking writing. You say much with an economy of words. Your writing really makes me think about my relationship with God. Just being yourself. That’s what it’s all about.

    Have a light-filled weekend!
