"Generosity"

In thanks to all those who possess a wisdom deep inside, most likely born of the trials and errors of life, and may not even realize they are teaching others I say:

BE NOT SO FAR FROM ME

AS THE YEARNING HEART DOTH PREACH -

FOR THE WISDOM OF THE LEARN'ED ONES

STAYS CLOSE TO THOSE WHOM THEY WOULD TEACH.

Soon more poetry will make its inevitable way to these spaces, for as most people I tend to think in pictures that transform into words. Years of scientific research reveal that the right brain controls our empathetic, artistic, even reckless urges - the acts we perform from a true need to express.  The left brain is logic itself and got really high grades in math lol.  It controls our instinct to kick someone in the shinbone rather than talk out a difference of opinion with civility.  I want so many things for people who strive with all they have to make a difference!  I want their names on a plaque somewhere!  People who float through life on a cloud of indifference are missing so much, and I find you never really get to convince them otherwise, because it's "Why work if I don't have to?" That's the start of "Why do anything if if's done for me?"  Soon comes "Why stay awake when I can just sleep?"  You probably see where this ends up:  "Why live?"  So people need purpose, need motivating forces.  My belief is that the ones I refer to in my little verse are the people with more to offer, therefore have more responsibility to give of themselves, guide those who prefer their soft clouds of "So what?"  If a thing makes no never mind to someone, one day we'll have people seeing starving, homeless folks on the street and they'll walk right by.  Oh wait, that's already happened, hasn't it.

Yes, people just walk right by and don't even give it another thought. That is to say, other than thinking how dirty someone is or how ragged their clothes are.
It's a shame that we have to learn things the hard way.  Sometimes we learn and then we get caught up in that shiney, happy world that Satan teases us with and we walk away from the Lord.  Quite honestly, I wonder what hurts him more, that we have a very difficult road ahead of us with lots of trials and heartbreak or that we think we actually don't need the Lord or can bargin with him.  The Bible clearly tells us that light has no fellowship with darkness.
I see people fading in my life.  I only thought that I had lost a lot of people up to the point where I rededicated my life to the Lord.  Now, I am the one walking away, making a different choice and my prayer list just keeps growing and growing.  I am not entertained any longer with the movies that are filled with profanity and violence.  I am no longer content with luke warm. I have a fire in my heart for the Lord and even if the rest of my life is one horrible trial after another, one day, I will see his face.
Thank you for your entry.  God bless.

A very good post and it reminds me of Christ's teaching in that much is expected of those who have been given much. And it is in them that we are to find the strength to motivate others.

Be well,
Charley
