If you had been living when Christ was on earth And had met the Saviour kind, What would you have asked Him to do for you, Supposing you were stone blind? A child considered and then replied, I expect that without a doubt, I'd ask for a dog with collar and chain, To lead me daily about. And how often thus, in faithless prayer, We acknowledge with shamed surprise. We have only asked for a dog and chain, When we might have had - opened eyes. (author unknown) mumbly

Oh how true this is and how many times have we ask for a crumb when we could have had the whole meal!
Awesome poem Mums -thank you for sharing it.

Sometimes we don't ask God for the greater gifts because we really don't want to receive and thank him. We sometime want to be in a poverty state where we don't think we owe God anything. Pride can manifest itself in many shapes and forms. May you be blessed. Amen.

Random blogging today, Mums, and ran across your poem. -Maybe my perspective is different, or maybe age and experience have just changed it. -More than once, I had much... -And then life taught me how little it takes to be content...

-We should never limit ourselves especially when it comes to God, but then again, there are those who are quite happy and content with just a dog on a chain. Amen?

God Bless! :angel:
