when do we give

all of what we said
makes sense, somehow
but is that the lesson
is that what Jesus said
is that what he said
and is that what he would do
if he was here with us now

when did we give
how much should we give
should we worry
how they will spend
the offering, the hand out
should we keep some
for ourselves

should we give
like Mary,
pouring the nard,
like the widow did,
her last two coins
given joyfully to God
do we say yes to all
to be faithful to Christ
to love as He loves
can we hold any back
