To Be Ready

“Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,
to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.”   Titus 3:1-2

I am listening to this as the November elections draw near.

Lord, as we embrace this scripture for ourselves, we also pray it for those who will be leaders in our country.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

What Good?

What good will come
if we aren’t ready

to do good
and obey

to be gentle
and know Peace

to hold back on
calling names?

Opposed

“Likewise exhort the young men to be sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one being an opponent  may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.”  Titus 2:6-8

Christians will have opponents.

Lord, thank You for making a way for us to live so that nothing evil can be said of us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Nothing Evil                                                              

Even though quiet
isolated and alone

lives lived for Jesus
will still be known

a contrast to
the darkness around

opposed but in them
no evil is found.

All Or Nothing

“To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.”  Titus 1:15

I live with someone pure and it’s a tremendous blessing.

Lord, thank You for purifying us more and more so that we can see only You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The Pure

To the pure
all things are pure

deeply etched and
completely sure

mind, heart and soul
undefiled

seeking and seeing Jesus
mile after mile.
