 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

Pleading Unity

Let it never to be ignored,
I state in the name of the Lord;
Not to live any longer in,
This world like some others in sin.

Their minds are set on worthless things,
As temporary pleasure brings;
And are keeping them in the dark,
Not realizing where they embark.

God does not give them blessedness,
From ignorance and stubbornness;
Since they have no more sense of shame,
And cannot accept any blame.

Sexual perversion fire,
What they practice and desire;
Enjoying what is immoral,
And with sensual apparel.

That is not what the Lord has taught,
And should not have been what you sought;
For you know the Scriptures as heard,
Knowing the message in the Word.

You have been taught within the ways,
Of Jesus so that no one strays;
The truth is in Christ on how to live,
And the blessings that God does give.

So do not say anything that would hurt,
Offending others that would flirt;
To another the wrong intent,
From a disparaging comment.
