THE  GIVER  AND  THE  BEGGAR
By   Dean  Beaty  3/19/06
 
A man went to town, seven coins in his purse.
A beggar he met whose condition was worse.
He gave him six coins and kept only one.
But there is much more, Iíve only begun.
 
The beggar was greedy and not satisfied.
 He stole the last coin from where it was tied.
How terribly ungrateful, do I hear you say?
But what do we do with every Lordís day?
 
The Lord gives us seven and asks only one.
Do we use what is His for pleasure or fun?
Being ungrateful, we live for our ease.
And use what is Godís, however we please.
