11-30-14 Thoughts of the Wise

vanity

You find them in the universities,

Or splashed upon the television screen;

They like to show you all their fine degrees

And always come across as so serene.

Some want you to believe that they are wise,

And you might think they have a smarter brain,

But God knows all their theories, flaws and lies;

If they believe they’re wise they’re truly vain.

Intelligentsia think they have smarts,

But they have only mastered arrogance.

The Lord sees through their minds into their hearts;

To Him their pride and egos are affronts.

The wise are only wise when they think not,

For wisdom comes from God – it can’t be taught.

~~~~~~~~~~~

The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise,

that they are vain.

1 Corinthians 3:20 KJV

9-8-14 Green Pastures and Still Waters

sheep-green-pasture

My shepherd leads me to the perfect place

Where rocky mountainside gives way to lea,

And there amid the clover of His grace

He knows that I will never go astray.

The water of His love is pure and still;

No babbling brook to make me start or stress.

Ev’ry time I drink I get my fill;

This living water’s never to excess.

My faith is led into His righteousness,

Invigorating both my heart and soul.

Away from worldly cares I convalesce

And rest until His love has made me whole.

            The Lord will make me lie in pasture green

            And lead me to still water so serene.

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

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:

he leadeth me beside the still waters.

Psalm 23:2 KJV
