Do You Wound

Do You Wound

Do you wound people with your words
You put them in their place
Even though they don't deserve it
It's like a slap across their face
They might hide their feelings well
Sometimes they surely cannot
But of course you do not notice
You don't really care a lot

You haven't looked in a mirror of late
The one that sees inside
If you happened to really check it out
You'll read that God hates pride
So humble yourself and give some thought
People have feelings too
Don't just think about yourself
But think on others too

A haughty spirit goes before a fall
Pick your landing site
God might have to bring you down
So you may walk upright
So check your words before they enter
The atmospheric air waves
May they be well seasoned with grace
For the rest of your days!

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
