6-12-14 Dirge #10 – The Irreconcilable


“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)
