If you would dare to want to know your friends,
Lose everything you own; be destitute.
The clique you used to know will show their ends.
Good luck if you don’t have a parachute.
A poor man’s house is not well visited,
For there is nothing there to want or claim,
And if his house burns down then God forbid
The crowd that knew him rich would douse the flame.
It matters not the things you own or owe;
With Jesus as your Friend you need no more.
With Him it doesn’t matter what you show,
If you have dirt or marble on the floor.
The Savior looks straight to your inner heart.
He knows just who you are but will not part.
Wealth maketh many friends;
but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
Proverbs 19:4 KJV
