Many rich people don't obey God's Law.
When it's time to give, they withdraw.
Some of Earth's people are by greed beset.
The time to give, they just "forget."

Can I love others as I love myself-
Put my selfishness on the shelf?
It's really freeing to love and not judge,
To do what God says and not budge.

For ev'ry grievance there's time to let go.
God's Holy Word says this is so.
Our real problem is stubbornness of heart.
We'll yield to Him if we are smart.
