Sticky Note From God~ 05.15.19~


Sounding Brass ~

Sounding brass,
sharp and shrill
the call to charity
they can’t fill.

They seem to appear,
so strong and wise
but yet so oblivious
to charity’s cries.

Tinkling cymbals,
sound so sweet
but give no charity
to those they meet.

They look sincere,
so meek and small
yet still can’t hear
charity’s needy call.

Sounding brass,
tinkling cymbals
have not agape love . . .
plain and simple!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 13:1

“Though I speak with
the tongues of men
and of angels,
and have not charity,
I am become as
sounding brass, or a
tinkling cymbal.”

I Was Hungry ~

I was hungry . . .
but you fed me not
from my thirst
I was pale and gaunt.

I had nowhere,
to lay my head
the clothes on my back
were mere threads.

I was sick,
but to me you didn’t come
you didn’t care in prison
if I was treated like scum.

I was a stranger,
but you looked away
hungry and thirsty
with no place to stay.

I needed a friendly hand,
for I’m meek and poor
but never once to ME . . .
did you open the door!

~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 25.45

“Then shall he answer them,
saying, Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye did it not to one
of the least of these,
ye did it not to me.”

Adding To Your Faith ~

Once you have faith,
you mustn’t stop there
you need to add to it
more things with care.

To your faith add virtue,
and you will be pure
for faith and virtue
is ungodly living’s cure.

To virtue add knowledge,
it is the wisdom of life
for faith with knowledge
will cause you no strife.

To knowledge add self-control
in all the things you do
for faith and self-control
lets the light of God shine through.

To self-control add perseverance,
you will need it to faithfully run
for faith and perseverance
is the only way the race is won.

To perseverance add godliness,
in all that you say and do
then charity and brotherly kindness
will ooze right out of you!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 1:5-7

“And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance;
and to temperance patience;
and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.

The Gift of Goodness ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ GOODNESS ~

The gift of God’s goodness,
is ours to give away . . .
for, we must always be ready
to show kindness every day.

The simple gift of a smile,
may brighten another’s day
giving someone a compliment
can go a long, long way.

A quick little thank you,
might be all someone needs
any selfless act of charity
should be in all our deeds.

We don’t need a lot of money,
to spread around compassion
we just need a heart for God
Jesus the center, of our passion.

The gift of God’s goodness,
is ours to give away . . .
for we never know whose heart
our actions to God, will sway!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for
Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

Marc Minter

Jesus is the well of the living water, the Holy Spirit.

“It was the last and most important day of the Feast. Jesus stood up and spoke in a loud voice. He said, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Does anyone believe in me? Then, just as Scripture says, streams of living water will flow from inside him." When he said this, he meant the Holy Spirit. Those who believed in Jesus would receive the Spirit later. Up to that time, the Spirit had not been given. This was because Jesus had not yet received glory.” ‭‭(John‬ ‭7:37-39‬)
