Hearers and Doers

Hearers and Doers

Reading God's word religiously
never missing a beat...
always quoting scriptures
to whomever they meet.

So heavenly minded
yet obnoxious as can be,
acting holier than thou
for everyone to see...

Then there's the Christian
who takes a back seat
meditating on God's word
and learning at His feet.

Never seeking the spotlight
neither a title or label,
just practicing the truth
whenever they are able.

Acknowledging the Lord
thru a committed lifestyle,
exhibiting Christ's love
to others with a smile.

One Christian is a doer
who is living God's word,
the other only hears it
but not living what they heard!

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.
