God Gallantly Gave  

It is a little like God to give.

He gave the greatest Gift of all,

(Knowing when taxation would fall)

Allowed birth in crude stall –

What a place to start to live.

 

God gallantly gave – showing all,

How to humanly rise and share,

To extend hands that confirm care,

Sometimes, the gift of “being there.”

Giving is much more “fun” than ball.

 

Some, when pantry is nearly bare,

Find a gift within their large heart,

Service is gift’s most costly part.

They find more, once they really start

Giving, giving all that they dare.

 

God’s where all giving has its start.

He gives and gives, gave and He gave,

Life to sovereign, life to the slave.

His Gift should cause a greater rave.

Giving is a bit like God’s heart

Love the world? Fascinated by the walk/talk/balk (balk against God) of all things worldly? You won’t love it long – probably less than 100 yrs. Either you will willingly let go of it, to grasp a far, Far, FAR greater love, Jesus Christ & BTW His love is forever. Or the world will be pulled from your dying fingers; & you’ll forever hate the world in a hot eternity.

FAT CHANCE  

America should be in the shaming,

For its fixation with (gambling) “gaming,”

Sinning is so selfish in its play aiming.

Only God can do the needed taming

To call it gambling is not blaming,

Nor is it some “knee-jerk” mis-naming

Gaming? To the word “play,” how defaming!

Our Lord, Christ Jesus, never ended one statement with “jk” or “lol.”

“Mankind are prone to run to extremes. The world is full of men who always overdo or underdo.”

– John Fletcher, Works, vol 2

 

Today’s my day to pray for grandchildren; to pray “the Lord of the harvest” to send THEM forth into His harvest. I pray He’ll send some-to-all of the males as Proclaimers (full-time or “laymen”). Send the females as Prayers, also praying “the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into His harvest” (Luk 10.2); making them all productive in His Kingdom. Grandchildren – Please pray till you have God’s plan for life. When you reach your “sunset years” you’ll be so glad you did.

Jos 1. 7

“Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left…”

 

The hypocrite takes one of two stands about “separation” from the world.

1.) He can act like what the Bible says doesn’t matter. or

2.) he can interpret the Bible so that it actually “approves” of his shift to the left.
