It dawned on me yesterday that the good things in our lives come to us from Him. And most of the bad things of life, (excluding natural disasters which may be a warning) come from mankind itself. As I have stated many times here in this blog I am not a religious man per se, but I am a spiritual man and I am a believer in my God. The following is the result of those thoughts.
Have a wonder-filled day, and may God Bless us all,
The Good Shepherd
When He spoke unto the multitudes
He said, “heed My Father’s word.
for I come as His Good Shepherd,
to guide My Father’s herd.”
And He said, “If you follow in My footsteps
then I will lead you home,
unto to those greener pastures,
that the Hand of God has sown.”
He said, “to love thy neighbor
and to treat them as you’d want.
To turn a cheek once smitten
and forgive the hurtful taunt.
To envy not, the other man
for his goods and money gained.
And to help each other when in need
and be kind to one who’s pained.”
“Do these things in My Name
and ye shall live again
in glory and in righteousness
forever and amen.”
“For how you treat each other
is how you’ll be received,
when you stand before The Father,
He’ll not be deceived!”
