Do You Love Others with a Godly Lov
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 1 time

Do You Love Others With A Godly Love?


Do you think of yourself as

 closer to God than others?

Are you stirred with God’s love,

 toward your sisters and brothers?


The way you look at others...

 Some wonder.

You treat me some as if they’re

 "one big blunder."


You don't know their heart.

Yet you act as if you do.

Only God knows the heart.  Not you!


Please don't be quick to

put people in a box.

Pray for them and

 think Godly thoughts.


Didn't the same Jesus die

both for you and me?

Who will have a home

 by yours in eternity?


Don't give up on people. 

Don't they deserve a chance?

We should love one another...

 beyond any "circumstance."


How will you treat others?

 At what cost?

Christ left the 99 sheep to find

 the one which was lost.


Often, the "unlovable people"

need love and attention...

If being a Christ follower,

is truly your intention...

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!
