460. Three compliments

God has offered you
Not one, but two compliments.
His first compliment is:
You are His chosen child.
His second compliment is:
Your cry is of Him,
Your smile is for Him.
Man’s first and only compliment
To you is this:
He can perfectly live his life without you.
He is more than self-sufficient.
