Be Careful What You Listen To...

Be Careful What You Listen To...


You weren't my friend...

 when I needed one the most.

You were full of anger... 

Not filled with the Holy Ghost.


You believed what others said

 about me to be true.

And now...  There's a wide "gap"

 between me and you.


Rather than asking for forgiveness

 in what you believed.

Many rumors and gossip

 is what you received.


Are you going to love me as a

 "Christian" brother should?

Or is your heart going

 to be as "hard as wood?"


Be careful what you listen to

 as others often complain.

And especially when they

 bring up someone's name.


Walk in the peace and love

 And a Godly affection

So your life isn't filled with

 "wordly attention."


God will give you the victory

 you need to overcome.

By the blood of the cross and

 the power of his son!


May the work of the cross be a

 resounding wake-up call...

To be an example of God's grace...

 to one...  and to all!

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!
