Too Many Christians Are Easily Offe
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 2 times

Many Christians Are Easily Offended!



 



It seems like, just the “drop of a hat.”



How easy people get offended and turn their back.



 



At church, many say “we welcome you as you are.”



But forget all about you when you go out to your car.



 



You get involved with activities of various kinds.



And have discussions with many different minds.



 



But if you say something to



someone that may “offend.”



They “have nothing to do with you.” 



They don’t call you “friend.”



 



How many believe what scripture teaches



 concerning God’s eternal love?



But rather try to give the other person a “shove.”



 



What good does it do to tell others you’re Christ’ example?



When an “offensive” brother is



“kicked around and trampled?”



 



Isn’t it time to put all of your



 feelings of “anger” aside?



And ask God to take away all bitter



 feelings and pride?



 



To those who’ve received mercy.  We must give it in return.



  Jesus knows our every thought and is concerned!



 



Why not find somebody that you have “brushed away.”



And speak love to him in what you do and say!



 



Learn what it truly means to live and the power to forgive!



Your life for Christ…  Is what our savior gives!



 



Seek to restore relationships in those that surround you!



Seeing how God can work,



just may astound you!



 



By allowing the goodness of Christ



 in you to be completed…



Any hard feelings or unforgiveness



 will be defeated!

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!
