Brotherly Love

Spread forth life’s seed through every land          Mt.28:19  

Love them as I’ve loved you                                 Jn.15:12

Through love they’ll come and understand          Pr.16:21

The way to life anew                                             Pr.15:1


A church or branch can cease to grow

Not always though through sin

But through the lack of love we show

Serving the flock within


Our love in Christ, should not be rare

But rich, flowing and true

Willing to serve willing to share

With others serving you


Walk hand in hand, as Christ would do

Look not a fault to find

Then they in turn, will share your view

And to your; faults be blind


In countless ways, true love is shown

Compassion, trust and care

We’ll harvest only what we’ve sown

So what we have, we share


Let no-one covert, another’s gift

For service they’ve received

You may well cause God’s Dove to lift

Through selfishness so grieved


Your brother may hide, a broken heart

Behind a smiling face

With care your arms could well impart

The love of Christ’s embrace


God loves to love, but hates to hate

This statement’s more than true

Love your brother to share the fate

That you would love for you.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
