LOVE NOT THE WORLD BUT LOVE

Easy to spot the Christian who,

In his self-centeredness,

Sees only avoidance of sin!

Sees no one to bless!

.

.

His avoidance inadvertently

Of everyone else

His eyes on the ground, never to look

Upward!  Just self!

.

.

Why cannot we be proud we love Jesus?

Look on that cross there!

At work, at play admittedly,

Do not I even care?

.

.

Admittedly sure not ashamed

I serve a living Lord!

Some may scoffingly ask and who is that?

Only One can afford–

.

.

To love us all!  For His children we

So often, full of hate!

Lusting instead of love; only

Self to satiate!

.

.

Lust, self love, the difference all know!

Inordinately is hate

Everyone else breathing the air

Just will not accommodate.

.

.

Love each other, for love is of God!

He who does not love

Cannot love God for He is complete in

His purest, above.

.

.

All for when unselfish complete!

Can be nothing I see,

Except so close to the Only One

Who gave His life for me.

.

.

God is love!  And he who loves not, knows

Not, the only One.

Who is purest love who gave His life

My God.  God the Son!

.

.

And He is my Father!

STILL WRITING

Of course, I am still writing.  Do not

Know how to quit!

When I am dead and still writing,

Will not shock me a bit!

.

.

Night-time, I am near sleeping,

Sure, a tricky rhyme,

Haunting my repose then

Cannot stop it.  Anytime!

.

.

Of course, then has to make sense!

‘A rhyme is a rhyme…’  Not here!

Enough nonsense traipsing around,

Got to put it in gear!

.

.

Progress winds through rocky hills,

Sure, valleys we go!

Wait up!  I am loosing it,

So back up a row!

.

.

Train of thought!  Has to make

Sense!  Don’t you see?

Hills, mountains, sure, valleys, too!

Of course, must be.

.

.

But, with original thought returning,

To what am I called?

Perhaps to lead people, like, upward!

Is that why I am bald?

.

.

But upward is, as I can see,

Not more wealth, security.

.

.

Upward much bigger, sure, stars above,

Higher than that!  God is love!

Of course, God had to come in!

“Beginning, created everything!”

.

.

If not for Him we would not be!

Climbing some banana tree?

So why am I here?  As I look up.

Stars I see, oh that empty cup!

.

.

Awaits to be filled.

Yes, I am waiting now!

I receive by faith,

Of course, that is how!

.

.

We “walk by faith, not by sight.”

Nor will He let you down!

Thank Him for what He has done!

Wear that winner’s crown!
