Leftovers

Leftovers are such humble things,
We would not serve them to a guest,
And yet we serve them to our Lord
Who deserves the very best.

We give to Him leftover time,
Stray minutes here and there,
Leftover cash we give to Him,
Such few coins as we can spare.

We give our youth unto the world,
To hatred, lust and strife;
Then in declining years we give
To Him the remnant of our life.

One thought on “Leftovers

  1. How very true that is-especially the time reference. I tell myself over and over I will do better and so often the time for God comes after everything else gets taken care of. Must keep working on that one.
