In Humility

 

Be gentle
avoiding quarrels

teaching others
patiently

humbly correcting
those who oppose

so the truth is known
and they’re set free.

**********

I can avoid arguing, for You are with me.

**********

“And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient,”

“in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth,”

“and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.”

2 Timothy 2:24,25,26 NKJV

The Public Life

“And He entered a house, and wanted no one to know it, but He could not be hidden.” Mark 7:24

It’s hard to keep something good and wonderful hidden and a secret.

Thank You, Jesus, for being so patient and compassionate as the people sought You out, leaving You very little time for private moments. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Lone Time

I looked forward
to my time alone
with You

but I worshiped
my time alone
more than You

now there’s no time alone
but my how I
have You.
