We've wondered about this subject we
are writing this poem about since we were
"Born Again" a few years ago...And we
believe God has put it on our hearts to write
about it...

Why are there some Christians who knit pick
each other to death, and never give any encouragement,
or kind words? There are some who can tear a person's
heart apart, with the words they speak, and break a
church apart as well...

How, as Christians, can we show the Love of God
to the lost if we don't first show it to each other?
We all know the answer to that, we can't!
We have all heard people say, "I'm as good as
(he or she) is, and I don't even go to church."
Christians tearing each other apart is the main
reason the lost feel that way.

We are NONE of us perfect, BUT along the
journey we are on, we meet some, sometimes,
who think they are. The Scripture we chose
below is very strong words from our Lord.
But if you think about it a bit, His feelings
on the subject of

 ~ LOVE ~

is strong enough for
Him to send HIS only SON to die for us!
Very strong indeed!

Why?

Why do we as Christians tear each other apart,
When all it gains is broken hearts.
God has emphasized the Word LOVE,
And sent His best through Jesus, from above.

To show us how to love each other,
As He wants us to as Sisters and Brothers!
How can we show the LOVE of God,
When we judge each other with a ROD?

Jesus is our Judge, and we will stand
Before the judgment seat and He'll demand
An answer for how we treat each other
If through His blood we are, Sister and Brother.

The Word of God should be our guide,
The words He leads us to say will not over ride
The biblical values He has given to us,
If in His Word we will heed and trust.

Sometimes in our daily walk, we must agree
Always wanting our point to make, can be contrary.
The best way to show our witness clear,
Is to be loving and giving, it must always appear.

The old adage is somewhat true and apropos,
If you have nothing good to say, in life's daily flow,
Restrain your words and let silence reign.
For to be abrasive and speak, can be hard to explain.

Words of kindness should ever be on our lips,
And should flow from us as honey drips
From the honeycomb so sweetly.
Yes, our words should be spoken discreetly.

Shy and Siggy

Ephesians 4: 32 ~ 5: 2
And be ye
kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake
hath forgiven you.

1st. John 3: 13~16
We know that we have passed from death unto life,
because we love the brethren. He that loveth
not his
brother abideth in
death. Whosoever hateth his
brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer
hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby perceive we
the love of God, because he laid down his life for us:
and we ought to
lay down our lives for the brethern.
