The Unsaved

THE UNSAVED
 
The unsaved oftimes put us to shame
They beat us at our own game
They offer help to those in need
And rarely suffer from the word called "greed"
They have it in their heart to help those hurting
"Been there done that!" is their wording
Sincerely acting on a moments notice
To our chagrin enough to shame us
For we place standards in our rrsponse
And we won't budge from that an ounce
"Have to pray about it" so often quoted
Then we forget..I've often noted
I've been guilty myself as well
To hold back ..retreat to my shell
But God uses others for reconsideration 
If I'm to enjoy my "so great salvation"
I must prepare my heart to give, give, give!
Then and only then..will I truly live!!!!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
