Bucket lists get much attention,
list the things you want to do?
Decide, your time’s expiring,
your years remaining few.
But after you’ve checked ’em off
what difference has been made,
sure some excitement, adventures
but real soon the memories fade.
Instead let’s make a sieve list,
things received we give away,
then instead of collecting relics
we put a smile on people’s day.
And then we all get a blessing,
the helped and helper alike
for giving is better than receiving
Jesus said so it must be right.
