Who are you striving to please?
Is there something more than love you are hoping to achieve?
If it is fame you are seeking
Troubles may come creeping
Prosperity of an overflowing proportion
What would you do with it if it came in the morning?
Praise His name
Stand up tall, shout and proclaim
That He is Lord, the One who always provides you with more
Or throw it all away?
Let it make you insane
Appointed to bear
You have been given your share
So share it wisely and give it widely
A burden it should not be
But a true gift in its entirety
As His goodness surely flows
The gifts you receive will continue to grow
Your purpose revealed only by His word
In His mercy let your humility show
With interests of others truly beyond your own
“Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of other.” - Philippians 2:3-4
