Itís not about if you win or lose
Itís in the way in which you choose
Brother, be shrewd

When intellect and ability come face to face
And insight helps you set the pace
Brother, be shrewd

Be clever and wise, faithful and true
Knowledge and effectiveness qualify you
Brother, be shrewd

Seeing past the surface traits
Itís how you build and you create
Brother, be shrewd

No wisdom or plan can succeed
Unless the Lord set it be
Brother, be shrewd

Understanding, depth youíll need
Plan, and then, do sow the seed
Brother, be shrewd

Reach out to others, give donít take
Our Father richly compensates
Brother, be shrewd

Attaining discipline, listening too
Pay attention to what you do
Brother, be shrewd

Appointed for such a time as this
In His plan it all does fit
Brother, be shrewd

Practicing His presence in all you do
Evilness you must elude
Brother, be shrewd

Keen, not cunning, donít forget to dream
Always worship Christ our King
Brother, be shrewd

Apply your lessons without delay
Heís coming back one soon day
Brother, be shrewd

It's not about if you win or lose, but how you choose...

How those words haunt me as I've chosen so badly so many times. This talked to me in so many ways.

Interesting and different. I liked your take on the topic. Nicely done.

Wow! Yes, I agree with the other comment... the take is different. But that's what makes it so interesting. So many truths to consider... and they all come back to being shrewd. Awesome work!
