Only The Grateful Give

I pray God in heaven above
Bless me, and provide what I need
Dear son, my Creator answered
You ask from a position of greed

Your withholding for special occasions
For disasters emergencies and such
You have the resources right now
For others who suffer so much

You see my son, I use you to channel
I use you to help others live
To show them you are grateful
Then you must learn how to give

When you give I can bless others
Use what I allow you to hold
Spread when you can least afford it
In giving be sacrificial and bold

But only give if you are grateful
If you believe I will give you in return
Otherwise, keep hoarding and counting
I’ll reward you when I return

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
