“Look not only to your own interests.” Philippians 2:4
“Give that back,” Squirmles yelled,
“That’s my new present. Can’t you tell!”
Squirmles was upset and didn’t want to share,
It was her new doll and she didn’t care.
“Please share your doll,” her mother said.
“If not, maybe it’s time for bed.”
Squirmles still wouldn’t share and obey.
“Okay,” said her mom, “have it your way.”
With that, off to bed Squirmles went,
Alone, without her sister or toys, she was sent.
Selfishness had consumed her way,
And quickly led to the end of her day.
Nothing good happens when we only think of “me,”
Sometimes it’s hard to understand that and see.
God wants us to share all that we own,
He wants us to share with a joyful tone.
God gave us things on the earth to enjoy,
But he has given us more than trinkets and toys.
He’s given us family and he’s given us friends,
Selflessness and people are what matter in the end.
Do you share your things joyfully? Has anyone ever not shared with you? How did that make you feel?
