31.

I tried to become great.

God laughed at me.

I tried to become good.

God laughed at me.

I tried to become perfect.

God laughed at me.

Finally I said to God,

“My Lord, I shall become

What You want me to become.”

My Lord smiled at me and said,

“My child, now you are truly Mine,

And I am all yours.”
