Who got picked by God!
He listens the split second I call to him.
Complain if you must, but don’t lash out.
Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking.
Build your case before God and wait for his verdict. (Psalms 4:3-5; Message Bible)
Wait and trust the Lord.
Don’t be upset when others get rich
or when someone else’s plans succeed.
Don’t get angry.
Don’t be upset; it only leads to trouble. (Psalms 37:7-8; New Century Version)
This is a parody on the macintosh / p.c. commercials, but with a “religious, Christian/Christ-follower” twist.
