It Isn’t About God

The Almighty Dollar

It isn’t about god, is it?
It’s about the belief,
the little voice inside that tells us the sacrifice, the sin,
that they were all worth it.

It’s easier to live by someone else’s moral values.
It takes less thought, less heart.
Donate when you can.
Suffer the boredom of Sunday mornings in uncomfortable shoes.
I’m okay with it… believe that God will save you.

It isn’t about God though.
It’s about your face on billboards, right?
Finger in the air… and all you do is preach.
What ever happened to keeping promises,
living up to potential?
This world isn’t about God, it’s about you.
