~ Humbled ~
 
As I sat in the park today
and watched the children play
My ears were quite intent,
to what I heard one say
 
Are you going home for dinner?
'Yes' replied her friend
I'll just wait for you here
We have no money to spend
 
My mom don't have the stuff
to cook for us a meal
She said 'I'm sorry,
please try not to make a fuss'
 
'We'll just go to Jesus
and kneel right down and pray,
ask Him if he'll favor us
and send some help today'
 
The words of that poor child
rolled over in my mind
So I went up to her
And offered her a dime
 
She pulled her empty hand away
And looked up in my eyes
'You might need that for yourself'
That took me by surprise
 
I hung my head in shame
And took her in my arms
Show me where you live, my child,
you'll have your heart's desire
 
I'll share what God has given me
We'll sit down, enjoy a meal
And I'll leave enough behind
so your family can have their fill

'Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one
of the least of these my brethren,
 ye have done it unto me.'
Matt:25:40 KJV
