How Do You Treat Others???

How Do You Treat Others?
 
Do you think of yourself as
 closer to God than I?
Will you sit closer to him,
 after we die?
 
The way you look at me...
I sometimes wonder.
You treat me as if I'm just
 "one big blunder."
 
You don't know me.
Yet you act as if you do.
Only God
knows my heart.  Not you!
 
Please don't put people
 like me in a box.
Pray for me and
 think Godly thoughts.
 
Didn't the same Jesus die
both for you and me?
Will I have a home by yours
in eternity?
 
Don't give up on me. 
Don't I deserve a chance?
We should love one another...
 Beyond any "circumstance."
 
How will you treat me,
 when all seems lost?
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!
