† † † † † † †Wisdom

How oft we boast to know it all

Like Satan did, before his fall

Best be a fool in Christ and blessed

Than reign in hell the wisest guest


Most worldly wise exist in doubt

Quite ignorant what Christís about

What eyes canít see their minds despise

Devoid of truth they die like flies††††††††

Wise is the man with faithful eye

Can see Godís promise not to die

However dark oneís wayward past

Theyíll take lifeís gift and hold it fast

Are you; then wise, or think to be?

Has Jesus come to set you free?

Lay worldly wisdom best aside

Allow Godís Son to be your guide

Come as a child, receive lifeís prize

God sees the heart of each that tries

Come as you are; answer Christís call

Allow true wisdom benefit all

In Christ the least; confounds the wise

But this should be no great surprise

If man canít choose between two stools

Heíll surely fall like other fools

The least in Christ are never blind

They see The Truth who changed their mind

They know this life one day must end

Before deathís knee to Christ will bend

What greater wisdom could there be?

Than living life in victory

Secure in Jesusí warm embrace

Unafraid Godís face to see.....†

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.
