 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

You were called to freedom,

Do not use as a chance;

For abusing wisdom,

To give you an advance.

 

Intimacy you share,

Not the manner of love;

By having an affair,

Contrary to above.

 

Serve one another,

Denying your pleasure;

By helping your brother,

The love of true treasure.

 

You must love your neighbor,

Loving them as your own;

In leisure and labor,

As to what God would condone.

 

But if you devour,

Biting one another;

As a passionflower,

Intimate to smother.

 

Resist your desires,

And live by the Spirit;

Do as God requires,

Blessings for your merit.

 

Let not the flesh to lust,

Rather follow the Law;

The Spirit you can trust,

To keep you from the flaw.

 

It is a manifest,

The motives of the heart;

Emotions on a quest,

For the brain to impart.

 

For immorality,

Thoughts that have been impure;

Straying iniquity,

Causing you to detour.

 

Those who practice such things,

Will not go to Heaven;

Because the strife it brings,

Condemnation given.

 

The fruit of the Spirit,

Is love, joy, and peace;

For what you inherit,

Godliness will not cease.
