Love Your Brother

Love Your Brother

“He without sin, throws the first stone”

Said Jesus Christ with holy breath

The crowd could only turn and moan

None could throw the stone of death

 

The crowd dispersed, away they went

Failing to understand

Even for these! God’s Lamb was sent

Just as His Father planned

 

Through love He hung upon a tree

Through love Christ chose to die

Through love He sets the captive free

To live through love on high

 

Whenever we see others sin

We judge without a care

And so we let the devil win

When love we fail to share

 

For each of us has fallen short

Sometime, now, whenever!

Not; every day brings good report

Will God His love then sever?

 

Never through love, when hearts are right

When free of wayward sin

Who’s walk in truth is of the Light

Who heed God’s Dove within

 

A hand that meets another’s need

Prevents so oft a fall

Serving thus Christ with word and deed

Love will answer the call

 

Let’s love the Lord with all we’ve got

Also love our brother

For who loves God yet brother not

Loves neither one, nor t’other.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
