John 11:35 “Jesus Wept”
I’ve believed in people, foolishly,
Thinking others to be as forgiving as they claim to be
Especially those who wear the cross, or carry it
Upon their backs, as if struggling under its weight;
It isn’t the cross that’s so heavy to carry – it’s the hypocrisy
Bearing down on their souls, calling out others in shame
All the while smiling through covetous eyes, gossiping tongues,
Greedy hands, lustful hearts, raging tempers, gluttonous hungers,
Lazy countenances, prideful braggings and oh must not forget the
Secret imbibers (medicinal reasons, really?)
None of us are sinless, as some would have them thought to be
Point your self-righteous nose to the wind, gather stones at your
Pure feet; I’ll pray for you tonight, that one day you might see
Maybe you don’t want the prayers of a sinner?
Maybe you don’t want prayers from me?
Another prime example of why so many shun Christianity…
We are called to share His love and we waste it finger pointing.
