(Based on 1st Timothy 3:7)

Morbid though it may look,

When you finally are “took”…

What obituary

When in the cemetery,

Would you like written in the book?

Specifically, elders of faith,

By outsiders be thought straight….

Though disagreeing

But yet seeing

Those elders are worthy of taste.

Are you known for sticking to guns,

Or for being wishy-washy ones…

Defending faith there

With intellect, savoir-faire,

Or known for resting on buns?

A reputation solidly moored,

Is a sweet-smelling fragrance to the Lord…

Described by enemies

As a friend they’d want to please,

Or be honored by being directed toward!

–Jonathan Caswell
