10-1-14 Walking in Uprightness

Wealth

Tis better to be poor in worldly sense,

Not worried for his earthly furnishings.

Though poor, he is not sitting on the fence

Obsessed about the status that wealth brings.

A poor man tries to keep a simple vow,

And sometimes failing, works to make it right.

A money hungry man will scarce allow

His word to be his bond and live forthright.

The poor have conscience void of hidden plan,

And keeps a simple life with love for God.

The rich wants more than when they first began,

And keeps it complicated as a fraud.

A poor man lets the Saviour rule his life

Instead of mortal things and all its strife.

~~~~~

Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness,

than he that is perverse in his ways,

though he be rich.

Proverbs 28:6 KJV
