“I cannot trust you, you once did me wrong,” said the wife to her husband with ire;
She held on to all the mistakes that he’d made and wouldn’t let past faults expire.
Beware, unforgiving, you vex all that’s living!
You’re jury and judge, always holding a grudge.
In the end you will get what you’re giving!
“Forget our agreement, I just changed my mind,” drawled the fickle young man to his boss;
He couldn’t see working so hard for his pay and he couldn’t care less for the loss.
Beware, irreconcilable, you’re so unreliable!
A covenant breaker, you’ll soon meet your Maker.
Your excuses are unjustifiable!
“I’ve a chip on my shoulder, so don’t make me mad!” warned the man to his bride-to-be;
If you cross his path he’ll hate you to death, and in fact that’s meant literally.
Go away, you’re a danger, you act like a stranger!
You lack all contentment, so full of resentment,
There’s no peace with a dog in the manger!
If you want in Heaven you’ve got to forgive, so let go and just give all to God.
Surrender your anger, remember His Grace; with His Love you will always be awed.
Grace will soften your heart, it will make hate depart.
Practice with gratitude, it will alter your attitude!
1 “But know this: Difficult times will come in the last days.
2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control,
brutal, without love for what is good,
4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures
rather than lovers of God,
5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.
Avoid these people!”
2 Timothy 3:1-5 (HCS)
