What would you say if you could speak but 100 words?
How would your conversation differ
as you wisely chose your verbs?
Would you waste your time complaining
of things you don’t intend to change?
Would you use the precious words unwisely
by calling someone names?
Would your conversation focus
on great things that you have done?
The money you have made
or the contracts you have won?
What one thing would you do if you could do but just one thing?
What would take that highest rank,
Would watching this week’s game
be high up on your list?
Would you spend your time on Facebook
or care if Twitter did exist?
Would you be concerned with working late
so you may gain success?
Climbing up the corporate ladder
but your family life a mess?
How would you treat others if you had but just one chance
to show them Christ
without a word
and never a second glance?
Would you be impatient
and push people to the side?
Would you be so rude to strangers
not look them in the eye?
Would you still give a cold shoulder
to those less fortunate than you?
Would you curse the ones around us
who have a different view?
How would your life be different if strict limits were in place
that made you choose more carefully
the things you do and say.
Would you make a point to share kind words
When the opportunities arise?
To spend more time where it’s worth?
To comfort children’s cries?
Would you treat others
with respect and with dignity?
Not considering their social class
or what they’re offering?
God sees each word and deed and views them valuable
What did He see in us today?
Were we blessings in this world?
