NEGLIGENCE

I looked upon a farm one day
That once I used to own;
The barn had fallen to the ground.
The fields were overgrown.

The house in which my children grew
Where we had lived for years –
I turned to see it broken down
And brushed aside my tears.

I looked upon my soul one day
To find it had not grown
With thorns and nettles everywhere
The seeds neglected had sown

The years had passed while I had cared
For things of lesser worth:
The things of Heaven I let go
When minding things of Earth.

To Christ I turned with bitter tears
And cried, “O, Lord forgive!
I haven’t much time left for thee
Not many years to live.”

The wasted years forever gone
The days I can’t recall;
If I could live those days again
I’d make Him Lord of all. [author unknown]

“My sons, be not now negligenT…” (2 Chr. 29:11), for remember, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting” (Gal. 6:7-8).

Think About It!

Have A Great Day!
