A favorite poem from high school, which kinda got modified over the years into this (I will also post a link to the actual poem). was originally written by Edward Taylor. The posted devotion on Matthew 10 got me thinking of this poem again, and it's powerful message:

"Am I thy purse, Lord,
or gold for Thy wealth?
Men count me so,
but count me o'er Thyself;
Lest gold-washed face,
and brass in heart I be.

Am I new minted
by Thy stamp indeed?
My eyes are dim,
But doest Thou see
Thine image and Thy inscription
Stamped on me?"
