So you must be careful to do everything they tell you.
But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.
They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads
and put them on other people’s shoulders,
but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
We hear the words our leaders say but their actions deny their intent. Parents, teachers, politicians, employers, religious leaders and more tell us one thing but do another.
What are we to think and do?
I don't know about you but I'm confused...
and it's not just because I'm old.
