Heavenly Accounting

The other day
I found myself parking
In a pay lot
With numbered spaces
Where you put money in a slot

But I didn't have exact change
So I had to pay too much

In the evening
I found exact change
Left for me
By the honest parking attendant
Who had carefully accounted for what I had paid

Even so
Maybe in the end
We will find our efforts tallied up
With every good deed accounted for
And learn the true value of goodness

The way things compound
And children grow
And one good deed can lead to another
Our final heavenly net worth may be

* * * * * * *

Dear Lord,

Help us to place something
On deposit with you
Every single day
And may our investments
Grow in love
Benefiting many
