PSALM 50: 10 IN REVERSE

(See also Luke 12: 16-21).

Cattle on a thousand hills,

God sells them as He wills…

Helping saints

Who from hardship faint,

Supernatural paying of bills!

But, as Scripture warns,

We have much “cattle” in barns…

Not cattle per se

But I spent away,

My greed beyond normal bounds.

Sell my chattel I must,

We have already gone bust…

Bills unpaid

With no future aid,

My gold is turning to rust!

–Jonathan Caswell

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?.
