Before complaining of your lot in life,
Consider this and take it to your heart:
The Lord knows all about your pain and strife;
He authors your estate from stop to start.
You may think you know better where to live
Upon the ladder of success and health,
But chances are you’d take more than you give
And spend all of your time with fame and wealth.
Just ask old Lot who gave him all he had
Both on his worst day and upon his best,
And he will look to heaven sad or glad
Then tell you that the Lord gave and supressed.
Before you gloat, before you bitch and moan,
Regardless of your lot, it’s all on loan.
The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich:
he bringeth low, and lifteth up.
1 Samuel 2:7 KJV
