Hide and Seek: A Portrait of Mercy (a poem)

Moore to ponder:

This one almost comes across like a child’s poem, but I love children’s poetry, so I’m really not surprised.

I am not a poet. This is my first shot at it, so I probably made some mistakes, but here it is:

Scripture References;

6Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  7Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6-7KJV

11For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 12How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray? 13And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you…

About My Blogroll

Moore to ponder:

 

I love Christ my Savior. I also love the Bible. I believe all of the words in it are true. Do I fully understand all of them? No. I have come to understand many of them but not all. If you meet someone who does claim to fully understand all of them…I would advise you to make a hasty exit! I have read both simple blogs and blogs that speak in terms that I just do not understand. I have read fancy blogs and plain blogs. They all have their place. My advice to you, no matter which type you prefer, is to ask yourself these questions as you read:

“Does the entry I’m reading help me to remember that the Lord is faithful, hopeful, and charitable (loving), or does it cause me to forget that? Does the entry I am reading help me to remember that if I am a Christian I have been given faith, hope, and charity (love), or does it cause me to forget that? Does the entry I am reading help me to remember that the words I speak should help others to remember what the Lord is like and what we have if we are His children?…does faith, hope, and charity (love) truly dwell there?

“Are the thoughts expressed in this entry pure, peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy? Although I find much said in the Bible about God and man, the Creator and the creature, Is God the one being ‘Magnified’? Does the author understand that God is the ‘only’ one to be ‘Magnified’? Does the entry I’m reading magnify God or a theologian (both ancient and contemporary), the Bible or a doctrinal statement, God or man, God or a group of people, God or ‘a movement’, the Mind of Christ, or the thinking of a particular hemisphere, The Holy Bible, or a ‘particular’ version or translation of the Bible, The Gospel or eloquent words?”

There are so many devotional blogs out there, and the writers of each had something in mind when they began their blogs. I also, had something in mind.   I have some Bible verses that I would like to share with you.  Here they are below.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  Psalm 119:105

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.  2 Timothy 3:16-17

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.  Romans 15:4

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality…

Clothed in Scarlet

Moore to ponder:

These are some great thoughts on the “Proverbs 31 Woman”!

 She is not afraid of the snow for her household; For all her household are clothed with scarlet. Proverbs 31:21 ASV

My perspective on the Proverbs 31 woman may be a little different from some.  I know she has been upheld as the ideal for any godly wife and there are numerous ladies’ ministries and printed resources which support her example as a worthy goal.

On one hand, I don’t necessarily disagree with this application.  On the other hand, I wonder whether a singular focus on outlining a Christian wife’s role risks missing a beautiful picture which God has given those who have placed faith in His Son.  If you will bear with me for a few moments, I’ll try to explain what I mean.

Jesus said in John 5:39

 Ye search the scriptures, because ye think that in them ye have eternal life; and these are they which bear witness of Me
