My Business and God’s

Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins. Donʼt eavesdrop on others – you may hear your servant curse you. For you know how often you yourself have cursed others. ~ Ecclesiastes 7:20-21 (NLT)

What you think of me
is none of my business.
What I think you should do
is none of my business.
From the skin in,
I can change.
From the skin out,
that’s beyond my control.

You and me, God.
That’s all I have to please.
