 Important


Pastor Dan's message board once again hit a nerve;
I pass by his church every day traveling to town.
This is one of his ministries, this message board of thought.

The board states:
It is nice to be important;
But it is more important to be nice.

It has been up on the board for several days now;
Shouting at me as I pass by this message.
Sometimes I forget about civility to my fellow man.

The board states:
It is nice to be important;
But it is more important to be nice.

This message nails my conscience and makes me jump;
Responding from my soul, I see my unkindness.
Humbly, I ask forgiveness for my lack of love for mankind.

The board states:
It is nice to be important;
But it is more important to be nice.
