God whispered in my ears,
“Shhh! Do you have money to spare?”
Thrilled, I replied in haste,
“Yes, my Lord, how much do you want?”
“I need nothing, you fool!
So go not to any temple of Worship
With your donation.
Go there, to yonder starving child,
Feed him a few morsels,
And to that man in rags there,
Get him some decent clothing.
Go out into the world,
Do whatever good you can,
That way you will realize true wealth
And the route to my heart.”
