"Friends" Will Let You Down! Jesus
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

"Friends" Will Let You Down! 

Jesus Won’t!


You may have tried to help

 a "friend" in need.

Many hard luck stories

 to you, he feeds.


You try to help him and  

It makes you feel good.

But this "friend," isn't being

 Honest like he should.


Then something happens 

and you begin to say...

"Lord, why isn't he being

truthful with me today?"


If your motive is love, 

then you’re not wrong.

The principle of giving is

what really belongs.


Your "friend" will answer to

God for doing his part.

God is the true judge and

really knows his heart.


Just keep giving to others. 

Keep doing your best.

Give everything to God!

  Let him take care of the rest.


Lay your treasures up in heaven

 and you’ll see…

The riches of God  

 throughout eternity!

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!
