PRETENDING – PERISHING

God loves all He made, but His delight is

In those who return

His love, even though imperfectly,

Still willing to learn!

.

.

And return, necessitated!

As Psalmist who decreed,

His determination to follow God

Wherever he would lead!

.

.

Whether green pastures or still waters,

Even valley of tears!

Or the shadow of death when faced

With Satan’s taunts and jeers!

.

.

Whether through people but realize that

Satan surely uses

A friend or even close relative

For unintentional abuses!

.

.

“Slip of the tongue,” later realized,

But the hurt, so long done!

God is forgiving but can we expect

Hurt forgotten by one?

.

.

Expected to nourish and love always!

Kind words to anticipate!

Or is, “I love you,” made meaningless

By a turn of fate?

.

.

A “slip of the tongue,” or mouth muted,

Though not intended to hurt!

Though I take it back still not enough!

Sure, I still feel like dirt!

.

.

Forgiveness such a wonderful word!

Surely we know who taught and/or

Dealt to even His enemies for

Unspeakable torture wrought!

.

.

Crucifixion surely we realize

Religious folk proclaimed it!

Priests of long ago, Pharisees and Scribes,

Only Christians could change it!

.

.

By loving and by living for and in Him!

As Jesus intended!

Sure, not popular by those who perish

Or many who pretend!

.

.
