Who's Telling the Truth?

Hello Blogging friends,

I have been a busy bee lately, Spring cleaning my house in the Fall. While going through my desk drawer, I ran across this poem I wrote in June 1999 and wanted to it share it with you.

Who's Telling the Truth?

The world says, "Get ahead, no matter what the cost"
Jesus says "become a servant, as an example to the lost"

The world says "any religion is basically okay"
Jesus says "beware of false teachers, for I am the only way"

The world says, "live life to the full, it's all about having fun"
Jesus says "we're just passing through, meanwhile, there's work to be done"

The world says "no matter what you do wrong, surely you're not to blame"

Jesus says "confess that sin and I'll forgive and take away your shame"

I say "weigh the truth for yourself before anymore time goes by,
for eternity is way to long to take a chance on a lie."


  1. You're so right--weigh the truth for ourselves. Even if we don't, we're still accountable.

  2. Great poem and you are so right! Eternity IS way to long to take a chance on a lie.

    Thanks for your sweet comments, my friend!

  3. I love that Angie!!! What a great poem (and truth of course).

    Love you & miss you!
