Making Choices (not like Lot)

Lot chose the best,
and left the rest
to Abraham.
In Sodom, though,
he soon would know
deep problems come.
When faced with choice
heed scripture’s voice
– God’s will be done.

Unpleasantness
– sin brought distress,
and caught in war;
though freed, Lot soon
heard Sodom’s doom
– must flee before.
When faced with choice
heed scripture’s voice
how wise God’s law.

Himself to please,
Lot sought for ease,
and all was lost;
but Abram’s trust
in God (not lust)
brought what would last.
When faced with choice
heed scripture’s voice
– God’s way is blessed.

Enlightenment for the stumbling

John 12:46
The world was dark, a place of stumbling ground,
the residents for truth fumbled around;
In pity, God, who is all perfect Light
his Son sent to illuminate their sight.

But would they hang upon his every word?
or hang God’s Man from whom they wisdom heard
– rejecting truth, and grace he came to give
prefer in lonely darkness still to live.
