Do You Have Something Against Your Brother?


When talking to someone

 of God’s forgivenss…

 He said;  “This doesn’t apply to me…”

“I have no unforgivenss toward my brother….

 Whom I never see…”


“I don’t speak to him.”  “I’ve no reason

 to darken his door..”

“I just don’t want to be

 around him anymore…”


I asked; “What so what’s the difference in

 what you’re doing vs. unforgiveness?”

“Isn’t this a symptom of a deep

 rooted bitterness?


“Call it what you want.  But unforgiveness

 remains the same…”

“And you have no one…

  But yourself to blame…”


An unforgiving heart comes in

 many shapes and sizes.

God is never fooled!  There is never

 any “surprises…”


He knows your intentions… 

 How you act and what you do…

Can you honestly say to the one

 you shut out “ I love you???”


Christ came to extend the power of love…

 For all mankind to see…

His message of deep compassion was meant

 for both you and me!


Walk in the peace and love of God,

 he’s given to us all.

A prideful and stubborn heart will

 only cause you to fall!


Walk in the healing from the words; “I forgive…”

Allowing 1 Corinthians chapter 13

 to shape how you live…

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!
