Pamper

Ezekiel 36:26
New International Version (NIV)

26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.


Pampered to Death

If we were good to them
And they were good to us
We’d all get so very pampered
We’d hardly ever fuss

I’d say “Hi” to you
And you’d give me a wave
Our mothers would be so very proud
Of the way we’d all behave

There’d be no more feuding
No more fights out in the street
Road rage would be a thing of the past
We’d yield the road to all we meet

And wars would seem so horrible
We wouldn’t spend a single dime
Instead we’d invest our hard-earned cash
On things that were sublime

Like schools for kids and free healthcare
And great jobs for us all
There’s just one tiny little hitch
And it’s not so very small

Turns out that we’re all great “pointers”
Quick to aim a finger at you and you and you
But slow to take a look in the mirror
At anything that we might do

So unless we all get brand new psyches
All that fighting will continue every day
We’re just not interested in stepping down
Cause just admit it folks – we’re not made that way

Father,

As Apostle Paul said…

Romans 7:15-20
New International Version (NIV)

15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

So Lord… “Please help me!”

Thank You!
