7-9-14 Liar, Liar

tellinglies11

How can you claim to really love the Lord

When hatred for your neighbor flows within?

Like claiming peace upon a bloody sword,

Such paradox reveals your filthy sin.

If you desire to show your love for God

You must forgive your brother all his faults.

If not, the flame that burns is but a fraud

Revealing that it’s you whom you exalt.

Look deep within your heart for enmity

And pluck it out at once this very day.

A Lover cannot harbour enemies;

As vinegar in wine, it does betray.

Tis better to confess a troubled soul

Than claiming to be well when you’re not whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar.

For the person who does not love his brother he has seen

cannot love the God he has not seen.

1 John 4:20
