You Can't Fool God
You can fool the hapless public. You can be a subtle fraud.
You can hide your little meanness, but you can't fool God.
You can advertise your virtues. You can self-achievement laud.
You can load yourself with riches, but you can't fool God.
You can criticize the Bible. You can be a selfish clod.
You can lie, swear, drink, and gamble, but you can't fool God.
You can magnify your talent. You can hear the world applaud.
You can boast yourself as somebody, but you can't fool God.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Someone wrote, "The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it."
James 4:14 b
For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
