God’s Expectations - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Does God ask you to blindly pray?
Does God want you to only toil?
Does God tell that you act senseless?
God expects you to be quite wise!

The one who only prays is wrong;
The one who only works, insane;
The one, who thinks he’s clever, isn’t;
The one who follows Christ-soul-wise!

So, work with diligence on earth;
Be sensible in things you do;
Pray fervently whenev’r you can,
And listen to what conscience says!
