How Vain

by Anonymous

I counted dollars while God counted crosses.
I counted gains while He counted losses.
I counted my worth by the things gained in store.
But He sized me up by the scars that I bore.
I coveted honors and sought for degrees.
He wept as He counted the hours on my knees.
And I never knew till one day at a grave
How vain are the things that we spend life to save.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.

John 16:33
