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.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
