The Lie of Affluence by Raymond A. Foss

In the world today
truths obscured
hidden, buried
the life of affluence
that the land, plentiful
the abundance we enjoy
that any of this is the work of man
that we are self-sufficient
Forgetting the reality
all a gift, the fruits of the creator
God made all, the source
living water, life from the dust
breathed into existence
the world from nothingness
The fruits, the abundance
gifts of grace
not of our making
drinking from the living waters
blessings from God
