Pastor Seth – Poems and Musings

The Sin of Entitlement

Giving to people is no easy chore.

When they disagree, they are out the door.

When self is supreme, people feel entitled,

“Micro-aggressions!” Hurt feelings unbridled.


Some express gratitude, oh so greatly.

Others? “So, what have you done for me lately?”

Picky, nit-picky and oh so prickly,

Opinions of you can change oh so quickly!


Paul, how did you keep loving a Corinthian,

When his response to you was so unchristian?

It’s far more important how you treat someone

Than how they treat you! Like Jesus, become.
