Need, Speed, and Greed – John Boruff

Need overwhelms you on every side.
Threatening to take your very life.
Reigning with misery in your home.
All consuming doom.

Speed is the friend of the working man.
Prosperity the fruit of his mangled hands.
Skills that grow, and qualify, and secure.
The upward mobility of the dreamer.

Greed is an impatient spirit.
It won’t let you wait to gain any merit.
It won’t let earn a single thing.
It always wants everything.

In 2015, he released "The Gospel of Jesus Christ," which is meant to be a Bible study for open air preaching. For his other writings, search articles on this site or see the E-Books section.
