PROVERBS 14: 20-21
We’ve found neighborly help peaks
And plunges after two weeks…
You’re in a tizzy–
They’re suddenly busy–
That support system springs big leaks!
Was it something I asked the wrong way,
They often ignore what we say…
Appearing to grab
The first item nabbed,
So that we’ll just go away.
Some are best for small things,
Leftover milk or package deliverings…
But ask them to drive
Excuses sprout like weed seedlings.
Learning hard lessons about friends
Who have their own lives and trends…
Will stand by you,
To do as the Lord would intend!
