Humility ~

Humility ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If you want humility,
you will need to find
a way to unveil haughtiness
in your heart and mind.

For, when you reveal,
the smugness deep within
humility will start . . .
to trickle right on in.

If you want humility,
you will need to see
just how self-absorbed
you can truly be.

For, when you uncover,
your self-righteousness
humility with expose . . .
God’s righteousness.

If you want humility,
you’ll need to discover
just how arrogant
you can be to others.

For, when you explore,
your self-obsessed feelings
humility will have you . . .
before God kneeling!

Proverbs 18:12

“Before destruction the heart
of man is haughty,
and before honour is humility.”

The Beam of Pride ~

The Beam of Pride ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One day in the mirror,
I was shocked at what I saw
I had not seen it before
but now I saw the flaw.

How long it had been there,
I really did not know . . .
I was really surprised
it took this long to show.

Now that I’m getting older,
my eyesight isn’t very good
but it was looking at me
right there where I stood.

It wasn’t a pretty sight,
in other’s I’ve noticed it
but in my own eye . . .
I didn’t think it would fit.

One day in the mirror,
I saw something broad and wide
and on it was written . . .
“this is beam of you own pride!”

Matthew 7:3-5
King James Version

“And why beholdest thou
the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,

but considerest not the beam
that is in thine own eye?”

Holding the Line

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)
