9113. A Fool And An Opportunist

He is a fool.
He surrenders to God out of fear
That God or others will speak ill of him
If he does the wrong thing.

She is an opportunist.
She surrenders to God with the hope
That by pleasing Him today
She will be able to receive a special favour
From Him tomorrow.
