NOT MANY WISE…

NOT MANY WISE…

(1st Corinthians 1: 26-30)

I don’t need my M.S.E.

To know I don’t act wisely…

I don’t know

Which way to go,

Without turn signals advertising!

In spiritual things am I dumb,

I need a rule of thumb…

The Bible provides

Sufficient guides,

So a statistic I won’t become!

Others say they are wise

Enough to by themselves decide…

What is real

But I feel

My own spirit often has lied.

Educated enough to see,

Some wisdom is beyond me…

Others I’m sure

Will choose what is pure,

I’ll stay with my Lord safely!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
