What We Are...

We will not be judged by the job we hold
Nor the price tag of clothes or car
Our worth is not measured by silver or gold
But simply by what we are

Wealth is not found in the things we possess
Fortune is no lucky star
We will be judged not by our success
But simply by what we are

Much is required to whom much is given
The road to God is not far
We bring nothing to the gates of Heaven
But this alone…what we are
