474. He is a peculiar man

He is a peculiar man
Privately and publicly.

Privately he steals from God,
Publicly he gives to mankind.

Privately he shakes hands with God,
Publicly he touches God’s feet.

Privately he advises God,
Publicly he obeys God.

Privately he feeds on God’s Compassion,
Publicly he finds fault with God’s creation.
