People pray to God to relieve them from pain, grief and loss, to confer on them wealth, health and strength; but, if you develop an intimate attachment to Him and make Him yours, He will manage to give you all that you need. Do not demean the relationship into bargaining; give me this, then I shall give you this in exchange; if you insist on wages, you become a servant. Become His own. He is providing for the idler, the insane, the shirker; can He not provide for you?
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
