WISDOM EASILY IGNORED

Wisdom often ignored,

Bursts from the meat of God’s word…

One word or verse

sometimes make it worse,

Out of context and missing much more!

Beginners like those one liners,

Easy answered reminders….

A life of their own

These verses have bourne,

But the meat all around they think minor!

Mature Christians know God’s word well,

Knowing one verse won’t save one from hell….

Rightly dividing

The word’s exciting,

Like when God’s fire fell!

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?.
