11-16-14 For Richer or Poorer

slipping_away_by_hlifar-d3ezzra

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
