363. Fortune-teller and fortune-bestower

When man the fortune-teller
Promises me a bright future
My heart of gratitude
Makes his present immediately brighter.

But when God the fortune-bestower
Promises me the brightest future
My impatient heart of ingratitude
  Questions God’s sincerity
  Questions His motive.
