Do what you love, you’ll love what you’re doing.
Do not consider where money fits.
Do what God loves, you’ll find that it’s true then,
giving is blessed, and everyone gets.
Just how to find the thing that God’s loving,
whether for nations or for a church,
can’t be discovered in creed or conduct,
but in relationships and the search.
Seek not your own or other’s successes,
God’s no respecter of massive wealth.
Rigid defense of things like your di-et,
can leave friendless, though in good health.
Aim for the center of your existence,
live with the mess of society.
Share what you have, both time and your substance.
You’ll be both blessed and find yourself free.
