If God gave you one billion dollars, would you give 10% away?
You could build a theme park of joy
Or invent some meat out of soy
And still have enough to eat ice cream all day.
If God gave you one million dollars, would you give 10% away?
Build a house in a country town
Write a book and be all renown
And still have enough to fly Cathay
If God gave you one thousand dollars, would you give 10% away?
Buy a camera to remember your life
A nice present for your future wife
And still have enough to buy a cheese tray.
God gives you everything you have, do you give 10% away?
Encouraging someone with the words he gave,
Telling someone about how he came to save.
And still have enough to sit down and pray.

When you speak to me, I never know what me I should be.
Should I be the listener, stay silent to let you extend your thoughts to cover the both of us.
Use proper body language to show I'm listening, eye contact, but not too piercing.
Or should I take the confident role, at a party, to protect us both from the awkward silences.
Talk about anything, but keep it interesting, otherwise you'll think I'm boring.
What about the evangelist, taking your words and pointing them to Jesus.
I'll only listen to find connections, I'm not really interested in life's complexions.
Then there's the friend, who doesn't care what my next sentence is going to be.
It doesn't matter where this conversation is heading, because we are spending it together.
