Am I Your Brother In Christ?

Am I Your Brother In Christ?


You say you’re my brother,

yet pretend I’m not there,

You shut me out of your life…

And you tell others you care.


I don’t quite “fit the mold” of what you

 think a brother should be,

 thinking of yourself,

and less of me.


I tried to call you, and didn’t answer the phone,

Then tell me I’m not invited to visit your home.


You hypocrite!  You fool!  Who are you kidding?

You’re no representation of Jesus,

 by the way you’re living!


The Bible says love is patient, gentle and kind.

You can’t love just the 99, and leave me behind.


If you continue to “choose”

whom you’ll love and avoid.

Then true Godly love in your life will never be



By thinking and dwelling on that

what was done in the past,

You’ll miss out on a freedom in Christ,

 that will always last!

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!
