Careful Measure

Missions 2008

I carefully measure the money I share
I don’t want my own cupboards to ever go bare
I could actually give more
But there are so many poor
After all Jesus said; they’d always be there

I even measure the mercy I show
Being quite kind to those I love and I know
But if you cross my path
You will sure know my wrath
God’s up there, I’m in charge down below!

I dole out my pity with pride
Take a picture, and get my good side
I am sharing my wealth
But I won’t risk my own health
Now let’s go shopping on the high side

I dole out the small coins I disperse
Way down deep in my pockets and purse
I am sure they can live
On the tidbits and scraps that I give
After all without me, it’d be worse.
