Why Don't You Practice Christ's Lov

Why Don’t You Practice Christ’s Love?


You say you’re a Christian, but must pretend.

It’s like you treat me like an enemy, not a friend.


You must be unhappy with how God made me.

You refuse to listen or to even be with me,


Something must have happened. 

You’re offended.

Whatever separates us, can’t be “amended.”


Was it a disagreement or an argument or two?

You’re acting the way A Christian shouldn’t do.


“It’s not unforgiveness,” are the words

you expressed.

Yet you avoid me like I’m an “unwanted pest.”


You’re not being a good example

of Christ’s behavior…

You’ve been a poor reflection of the

love of our savior.


God’s the one you’ll have to answer

to in heaven above.

You’ll be accountable for what you did

with God’s love.


Jesus’ love never disappointed me. 

You let Christ down.

Where there is much sin, God’s grace

much more abounds.


Will you abound in God’s grace

and his restoration too?

Or keep saying to me; “I want NOTHING

to do with YOU?”

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!
