Why is God So Selfish?
Why is God’s request a ‘need’
But my request, a ‘want’ indeed?
Why is God’s house that fancy
But my house not much to see?
Why should I give to God’s missionary
When my own city is cold and hungry?
Why can I find God by only going to church
As if God wanted me, but didn’t search?
Why does a man of God drive a brand new car
As I drive my clunker that does not get very far?
Why should your music program be so hot
But my stereo system be so not?
Why is God so selfish and unkind
by not healing the sick and the blind?
Why is giving a tithe required
When my family is financially tired?
Why does God need a coffee shop
And I have to wait at the bus stop?
Why is a mission trip a huge cost
But our own neighbors are still lost?
Why must God have padded pews
And the poor walk with holey shoes?
Why does God have a tall steeple
But seems to reject the lowly people?
Why does God need pipe organs
But only muse about the orphans?
Why does God pass the offering plate
And also pass the widow at the gate?
Why am I so selfish
when it’s not my life that is so lavish?
