So the last shall be first, and the first last:
for many be called, but few chosen.
Matthew 20:16 KJV
The souls who are forgotten by the crowd:
The meek, the low, the bullied and the plain,
Are lost among the ego-driven proud
And last to find a post they can attain.
The Lord will not ignore the seventh son,
The shepherd boy who one day would be king.
The manger-born became the perfect One
To save a sinful world who hopeless cling.
We all are called to come unto the cross,
Invited to the wedding feast by Christ;
The proud will all be counted as a loss,
The chosen ones are those who’ve paid the price.
Down here we choose the leader of the pack;
If you would follow Christ, then serve in back.
