Grocery Cart, The 3-20-11


I saw a grocery cart today,
and overflowed, it was, I'd say.
It proudly wore the biggest smile -
pushed along in latest style.

Wow!  Every type of food I saw -
from T-bone steaks to carrots, raw.
Until unto the checkout came -
it didn't seem to look the same.

Now this is what it was about -
when all the food was lifted out...
but don't we understand it still -
that God has overflowed our fill?

Unless sincere and broken are,
grace resides at farthest star.
If faith is absent, there's no grace
outside the walls of Heaven's space.

Wear humbleness and faithful be,
with fruitfulness that's as the sea -
and diligence we must maintain,
for if we're lost - life's all in vain.

And though that cart was quite a sight -
received it not, one single bite.
So don't be like that grocery cart -
that's stuffed with grace, but has no heart.

Hebrews 5 (NASB)
13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness,
for he is an infant.
14 But solid food is for the mature
who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.

    Nothing beats reading an interesting poem with an uninteresting topic.
