The Word

Matthew 6. 1 – 2

“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

“Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”

ROADS. Wide roads. Narrow roads. Long roads. Short roads. Rough roads. Smooth roads. Curvy roads. Straight roads. Hilly roads. Level roads.

I’ve never seen a “minute” in my entire life.

An hour’s illusive; can’t cut it with a knife.

A month whizzes right by – is it in a spring-sprint?

Years fly like in the game: five, ten, fifteen, twenty

Are they running out or will I still have plenty?

And decades? They also roll by from start to end

Not staying long to visit, as should a good friend

Someday we’ll remember this mystery we call time;

It was passing, as quick as a Lord’s-day church chime.

“It is alleged by men of loose principles,

or defective views of the subject, that religion and morality are not necessary or important qualifications for political stations.  But the Scriptures teach a different doctrine.  They direct that rulers should be men who rule in the fear of God, able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness…”
