4-12-15 True Friend

wealth makes friends

If you would dare to want to know your friends,

Lose everything you own; be destitute.

The clique you used to know will show their ends.

Good luck if you don’t have a parachute.

A poor man’s house is not well visited,

For there is nothing there to want or claim,

And if his house burns down then God forbid

The crowd that knew him rich would douse the flame.

It matters not the things you own or owe;

With Jesus as your Friend you need no more.

With Him it doesn’t matter what you show,

If you have dirt or marble on the floor.

The Savior looks straight to your inner heart.

He knows just who you are but will not part.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Wealth maketh many friends;

but the poor is separated from his neighbour.

Proverbs 19:4 KJV

2-23-15 Blind No More

Brian Jekel Blind Man

Your sinful life has made you blind from birth,

A stumbling clown pretending to have sight.

Until you’re touched by Christ you roam the earth,

With arms outstretched you can’t imagine light.

Then Jesus comes, the perfect Lamb of God,

His Spirit mixed with dirt and turned to clay;

He puts it on your eyes with gentle prod,

And bids you go and wash it all away.

And when you do the darkness turns to light!

You’re so transformed you won’t be recognized.

Your friends will ask you how you gained your sight,

And you will say His name so undisguised.

He’s standing here right now to touch your heart,

And when He does you’ll see He won’t depart.

10 Therefore they asked him,

“Then how were your eyes opened?”

11 He answered and said,

A man that is called Jesus made clay,

and anointed mine eyes,

and said unto me,

Go to the pool of Siloam,

and wash:

and I went and washed,

and I received sight.

John 9: 10-11 KJV
