You are the poor young man,
the lowly qualified carpenter,
the person who eats and drinks with sinners…
If I don’t know you are God before,
I’ll make friend with you or not?
Jesus, I’m fearful.
I am afraid when I become the rich,
having many qualifications,
having much power,
having many people know me,
I may not walk faithfully with you.
Please lead me not into temptation,
but deliver me from evil.*
Money, power, fame, knowledge,…
are your gifts.
If you don’t give these gifts,
If you give me these gifts,
You say I can ask you whatever.
So please keep my heart still always.
I want to be the righteous
although you give me whatever I ask for.
With the still heart you give me,
the wisdom of the righteous follows,
I’m humble of heart,
I’m the friend of you and of all people.
I love you, Jesus.
