More Than a Cover

Don't judge a book by its cover
like men with shallow minds...
rather observe deeper still
and see what you will find.

Looks can be deceiving
like a whitewashed facade...
it may be a masquerade
but not a game to God.

God looks beyond the cover
to see what lurks inside,
will He see a contrite heart
or one that's filled with pride?

We are an open book
not just an outward cover,
when the contents are exposed
the real man we'll discover.

Let's concentrate therefore
on the image we reveal...
is it Jesus people notice
or a facade that isn't real?


1Sam 16:7  "People judge by the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the person's thoughts and intentions."

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
