8-23-15 On Sowing

Seeds

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption;

but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Galatians 6:8 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

They say that what you eat is what you are;

If that’s the case the world is full of waste.

The things that we consume won’t get us far:

The flesh is born to die, a fleeting taste.

Wherever you invest your consciousness,

Will soon become a new reality.

Then set your heart on Spirit to access

A truth that leads to immortality.

The Spirit that you sow should be of love;

For God so loved the world He gave His Son,

And from that fruit abides new life above.

The seeds you plant from this won’t be undone.

The way of flesh leads certainly to death.

The way of Spirit brings eternal breath.

2-16-15 Better Than They

kookaburra laughing

The bird is God’s creative form of flight,

Designed to sail the wind and walk the Earth.

It must still give the Lord such great delight;

The Cardinal’s red, the Kookaburra’s mirth.

No matter what their species, they find food

By piercing wood or digging in the ground,

And they don’t seem to worry for their brood,

For God supplies their sustenance year round.

Are we not so much better than the bird?

For we don’t think God will provide or try.

Trust Him for all the needs that you’ve incurred.

You are, my friend, the apple of His eye.

God notices the tiny sparrow fall.

Be still and know He’s giving you His all.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Behold the fowls of the air:

for they sow not,

neither do they reap,

nor gather into barns;

yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.

Are ye not much better than they?

Matthew 6:26 KJV
