Leave Gleanings


If I have given you
a good harvest

in whatever it is
you do

make sure to leave
a gleaning

for those
coming after you.


Lord, help me to generously think of others in all aspects of my life.


“When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, nor shall you gather the gleanings of your harvest.”

“And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the LORD your God.”

Leviticus 19:9,10. NKJV

I have prepared
a special place for you

and cleared away
the stones

choosing you
to be planted here

bearing the fruit of which
I’m known.

Jesus establishes the soil in which I grow.

“My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a wine press in it, so He expected it to bring forth good grapes . . .” Isaiah 5:1,2 NKJV

The Eleventh Hour

“And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ ”  Matthew 20:6 NKJV

“They said to Him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, “You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive it.’ ”  Matthew 20:7  NKJV

I’m so glad we serve an eleventh hour God.

Thank You, Lord, for giving the last of us the same as the first.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

In the eleventh hour
many still stand by
life has been so hard
no tears left to cry

yet Jesus is waiting
for such a time as this
welcoming  into the Kingdom
all equally His.

God bless you each and every hour!

No Reason For Death

“And he said to them the third time, ‘Why, what evil has He done? I have found no reason for death in Him. I will therefore chastise Him and let Him go’.” Luke 23:22

No, there wouldn’t be any reason for death in the Creator of Life itself.

We thank You and praise You, Jesus, for facing down the unreasonableness of death and evil for us. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Jesus Reasons

There was no reason
for death in Him

no evil
had He done

only obeying
His Father’s orders

back to the vineyard
He had come.
