Some men train their bodies well,

Have so such muscular tone,

Have such inward strength of bone,

Fame then comes to briefly dwell,

Because of physic alone.

 

Some men develop their mind,

Have a grasp of tongues of old,

Have mathematics in their hold,

Fame visits; leaves them behind

In its search for brains more bold.

 

Few men make soul growth a goal,

Have a hungering for God,

Have a craving for His nod,

To Him daily bring their soul,

Seek no fame – and are thought odd.  -eab, 12/14/07

If we had no Bible of our own,

Tradition, previous men have sown,

Could matter more to us, today.

Praise God, we have His fine, precious Book,

Each of us must study, as we look

Daily, learning the holy way.  -eab, 10/28/08

Sinners in trouble call on God,

Whether on rough sea or hot sod.

It seems a natural reaction;

Their soul’s only satisfaction,

Though last week prayer would’ve seemed odd. -eab, 11/7/07

Men have lied and killed, been so cruel,

To have a few more miles to rule,

Thinking lands, were cruelties worth;

Poor souls.  The  meek  shall inherit the earth!  -eab, 2/13/08

You will serve God, or you will serve gold.

Make your contrary assertions ever so bold,

And claim the truth has not been told.

But the love of money is the root of all evil,

The love of gold leads directly to the devil.

Gold can be shaped in various known forms,

It can appear average, or far from the norms,

One is pulled to the sciences, another to the arts,

One is lulled to amalgamations, one leaves things in parts,

One seeks gold directly, another seems it to “hate,”

But gold’s the one attraction of sinners, early or late, 

And, you will serve God, or you will serve gold. – eab, 5/21/08

“What you see is what you get;

Man is not special – he’s just another clod.

Molecules met in ‘soup’ – by mere chance.

Planet’s revolving?  Just happenstance.”

‘The fool hath said in his heart there’s no God”

                                                – eab, 8/7/08 (Psa 14.1 & 53.1)
