Some People

Some people feel superior
Just because their skins are white.
But, according to our Savior,
All are precious in His sight.
Weren't we all sculptured
From selected mounds of earth?
So how can dirt be prejudiced
Against different shades of dirt?
Some people are judgemental...
Will condemn one who is gay.
But would we like it if someone
Condemned us in some way?
None among us have the right
To cast that cruel stone.
Let's leave the judging up to God.
It's His job and His alone.
Some people laugh and snicker
At one with a handicap.
Never thinking their own genes
Could someday cause a mishap.
Life's been given to us all.
Let us show some empathy.
Let's be gracious and be giving...
Be all The Lord meant us to be.

 In His Love,
(c)Doris Jacobs-Covington

"Judge not, that you be not
judged. For with what judgement
you judge, you will be judged,
and with the measure you use,
it will be measured back to you."
Matthew 7:1-2
I feel the Lord wants his children to pray for the ones who hold hatred in their hearts. Jesus died for all people...and we are to be examples of his Grace. Love is the objective (or should be) in our lives. No, I'm not saying we should love the sin...but we should and must love the sinner. None of us are perfect...we all sin.... our only perfection is in Him. My pastor made a statement from the pulpit a couple of Sundays ago that people (Christians) are still condemning Jimmy Swaggart even though he's admitted his sin and is trying very hard to keep his commitment to the Lord. He's forgiven, my gosh...yes, what he did was wrong....but whoever is without sin can feel free to cast the first stone. We've got to remember that the gifts and calling of the Lord are without repentance....that means He doesn't take back His calling on Jimmy Swaggart's life. This man is STILL under the anointing of God. I think he's already paid an awesome price for his sin. But, in any case, he's forgiven....and no one should be condemning him. Condemnation is ugly...it only shows a sense of self righteousness.  The poem I've written doesn't cover all the bases, but I think it makes a point. Please pass it on if it makes sense to you. I write what God puts in my heart. I love all of you and I'm not "preaching" to anyone in particular...just passing on what's been given to me. Remember, LOVE never fails....and Jesus loves us all.
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

 26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

 27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

 28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.

 29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

 30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

 31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

 32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

 33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

 35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
