1 Timothy 6:6-8
New Living Translation (NLT)
6 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. 8 So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.
Meander Me Home
Why do I meander so?
Why don’t I “getter done”?
Why do I just keep standing here,
Soaking up the sun,
Why don’t I “get it in gear”?
And roll on down the road,
You’d think I had a thousand years,
To pay the piper what is owed,
But alas it’s just not in my soul,
To work at breakneck speed,
I’d rather work at a leisurely pace,
Taking only what I need,
Some will say that’s lazy,
Others will surely ridicule,
But I have time to cherish life,
And I think that’s very cool,
So say what you will, I understand,
For at one time I felt the same,
But having found the meandering way,
I no longer play the world’s fast-paced game
