A Brother Let His Brother Fall
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

A Brother Who Let His Brother Fall…


I knew of a Christian, who let his brother fall.

He didn’t reach out to help him at all…


When his brother needed someone, he wasn’t there.

He said, "why should I bother him, or even care?"


It was almost like he wished for the worst to take place.

I could see him even wear a smile on his face!


"Why should I lift a hand to help?" were the words said.

It was like he wished his brother was "better off" dead.


The anger I felt inside of me, was difficult to express!

How can he neglect his brother, and expect to be blessed?


Why does he call himself a "Christian?"

He doesn’t show it!

When it comes to love and forgiveness…

He doesn’t even know it!


What did Christ mean, when he said "love one another?"

Doesn’t this include everyone? Including our brother?


What do we expect from God? What would he say?
"You can’t forgive your brother?" "Go away!"


If we can’t freely share the love God has given…

How in the world, do we expect to be forgiven?


The love of Christ must completely change us within!

So we can experience what it means to be BORN AGAIN!


Christ has given to us his love!

Nothing can compare it!

May we all receive this love,

and freely share it!

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!
