Only One More Dollar


I recently heard a preacher say that our nation no longer worshiped God but worshipped money instead. I was reminded of a poem in Calvin Miller’s book A Requiem for Love.

Here is the poem:

A beggar asked a millionaire,

“How many more dollars

Would it take to

Make you truly happy?”

The millionaire,

Reaching his gnarled hands

Into the beggar’s cup, replied,

“Only one more!”
