Jesus didn’t say to go out in fear,
or to fret throughout our day
He didn’t say to sit and worry
or to follow the anxious way.
He didn’t say to lay our treasures,
in what this world has to offer
He didn’t say to hide our riches
or save them in a banker’s coffer.
He didn’t say He wouldn’t be there,
or that we would be all alone
He didn’t say He didn’t care
or that we’d be left on our own.
He didn’t say to seek after lust,
or to have eyes like the greedy
He didn’t say we would lack
be deprived, or poor, or needy.
But, Satan loves to turn,
Jesus’ words all around . . .
we must hold on to the truth
not the lies he uses to confound!
King James Version
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own:
for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Deborah Ann Belka
