Have you ever wondered why

The wicked mainly prosper,

While the righteous they may suffer

As they do things good and proper?

And the rich they just get richer

Whilst the poorer remain poor,

As the wealthy devise schemes

That always open the right doors.

It’s when lies and manipulation

Meet to climb all corporate ladders,

And when morals and true ethics

Seem to never truly matter.

But there is a righteous judgment

Which will test all human works;

To promote the low and humble

And strip the proud of their self-worth.

A reversal of all fortunes

Will exist eternally…

As the righteous enter life

While the wicked death will see.

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:25

“God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble” James 4:6

“Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation…For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes.  So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits.”  James 1:9-11
