If life is just about getting ahead

And the accoutrements it brings.

Then God does not fit in this equation;

A secular approach on life.


If we are too busy to think of God

Then we are too busy, Mother Teresa said.

If we can pull off the biggest deals

And grow in wealth and fame.


We must think of the life hereafter

And what we give to God today.

To be rich in Godly things-

These are the treasures that last.

the real treasure of true success is surviving into the afterlife ... as you eloquently wrote, "to be rich in godly things" ...

moral, spiritual and material dilemmas
are always with the thinker and with those
who feel; as always, George, a rich sense
of spirituality in your work

I believe it's much better to give and not worry about whether God approves or not.
