2 Timothy 3:2-5
New Living Translation (NLT)
2 For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. 3 They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 5 They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
I’ll get my way no matter what
I know how to handle you,
I’ll throw a screaming tantrum
Until you come over to my point of view,
I’ve done it all of my life,
I’m the master of manipulation,
I can get you to do what I want
No matter what’s the situation,
I might have to scream or maybe just cry,
Might make you feel it’s your fault,
Might have to play the victim
Or hit you with a verbal assault,
It won’t really matter; I’ll do what I must,
You see, I really just like to watch you cower,
It’s never been about one darn thing
Except knowing that I have the power.

We long to have our way. We seek after power we should not possess. Forgive us and change our hearts so that we long only to do Your will, in Your way. It is the only way. Thank You, Lord!
