5-3-15 Consider Your Ways

street-signs

Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts;

Consider your ways.

Haggai 1:5 KJV

            ~~~~~~~~~~~

Observe your life and look at what you’ve wrought.

Now take another look just to be sure.

Consider all your ills as well you ought,

And then consider looking for a cure.

You plant but don’t have plans to yield a crop;

You eat, but you are still not satisfied;

You drink but don’t enjoy the final drop;

You’re cold but then you dress in just your pride.

You earn but put your cash in bags with holes;

The more you look, the less that you do find.

Now ask yourself who sits at the controls;

The temple burns but you don’t seem to mind.

If what you’re doing doesn’t seem to fly,

Put Jesus in control – don’t pass Him by.

4-13-15 Twisted Days

church_fire_ftn101b

These are the days when logic twists around,

When evil’s good and good is evil, too.

The days of prayer in school cannot be found,

But public cursing’s fine and safe to spew.

We can’t disparage sex tween man and man;

Those portions of the Bible should be changed.

You mustn’t shift a word in the Quran;

Whoever does, their head is rearranged.

On Hallowe’en we dress our homes and selves,

And prance aroud with candy in our bowl,

But Christmas has become a day of elves,

And Easter hopping hares is our first goal.

Technology is not so bittersweet;

We don’t see eye to eye but yet we tweet.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;

that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20 KJV

8-2-14 On Moderation

kindness2

As you move through the hours of your day

Be sure to know your world is watching you;

To someone else your conduct there just may

Be all they know of Christians that pass through.

Now, think and act as if the Lord is nigh

With kindness and respect in all affairs;

Let God be glorified, and don’t be shy

To give Him credit always without airs.

Interpret ev’rything in their best sense,

Treat saints and heathens both the very same;

No matter what it is, forgive offense

And do all that you do in Jesus’ name.

Be moderate in more than dress and drink;

You might be to someone the vital link.

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

Let your moderation be known unto all men.

The Lord is at hand.

Philippians 4:5 KJV
