 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner


Bear the burdens of another,
For fulfilling the Law of Christ;
Sharing burdens of your brother,
Keeps him from becoming enticed.
This follows what Jesus had taught,
Assisting neighbors as they reap;
Carry a lighter load is sought,
Not to overwhelm as they sleep.
If you think you are important,
Look in the mirror see the fool;
Your humbleness is deficient,
According to the golden rule.
Each of you examine your deeds,
For seeing how you will invest;
So after you have sown your seeds,
Sit and wait till time for harvest.
Then you are able to be proud,
Accomplishments without compare;
And you can praise the Lord aloud,
A bountiful harvest to share.
Assume responsibility,
If bad yield do not blame the Lord;
Planting shows your ability,
If you will receive a reward.
Let him who is taught through the Word,
Share good fortune with his teacher;
Remembering all he has heard,
For being as a new creature.
Make no mistake or be deceived,
The Lord is already aware;
Of the amount sowed and retrieved,
How much a burden you will bear.
Planting in a corrupt nature,
Then you will harvest destruction;
But as a spiritual creature,
You will be reaping salvation.
