Do We Choose Whom We Love...

Why Do We “Choose” Whom We Love…  

And Ignore Others?


Why do we often “choose” those we love…

And ignore those we don’t?

It’s a good thing that Christ

do this!  He won’t!


Far too often,… People attending church today…

Will many times “choose” whom they’ll love… 

And turn others away?


 I’ve heard sermons preached

on how we must love others too...

For many, It’s too “inconvenient,” 

 to love others like we should do!


What about the “undesirables?” 

Those who fall through the cracks?

It doesn’t matter if someone is from

“the wrong side of the tracks!”


I pray that God will stir in all of us

a deep compassion within!

Perhaps, by our example…

Others will be born again!


May our life be one that is filled

with sacrifice and giving!

May it be an expression of Christ!

And his power of forgiving!


May we strive to treat others and

 love them all the same!

If we don’t follow Christ’ example… 

We have ourselves to blame!


Christ’ word has laid the foundation

 for loving every soul!

The mission field is all around us!

 Let’s get up and GO!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
