Reconcile with me
Imagine traveling all the way from Galilee to Jerusalem, 80 miles. Your donkey carried your goods, and your youngest child, while you and your spouse walked through the hillside. You couldn’t make that distance in a day so you must find a place to sleep. A Jewish family welcomes you into their home and offers you respite from a long journey. The whole trip takes you 5 days; it might have taken you less time but rumors of robbers on the road forced you to take a longer route…. (Read More)

…a lesson
I strove to teach my son of God
and found it oft in vain … 
on deafened ears the message fell
and wasn’t welcomed, I could tell.

I spoke of truth …
of His redeeming plan;
and how His Son, Jesus,
died for sins of man.

Of how rebellion is our nature;
how authority deserves respect;
 “There isn’t just your way
and mine, son …
but God’s, we must inspect!”

Seek Him in confusion;
pursue Him in your doubt …
His teachings will sustain you
when all else fails about.

The ABC’s you learned in school
have taught you how to read;
and numbers have importance
in all financial need.
Psychology is the study of man
his common ways, and odd,
but oh, my son, the Bible?
Ah! —-
the Bible, ’tis the study of God!

As onward went my message
I spoke with deep intent
yet, I could sense indifference
a strain, I could detect.

Verses may be quoted;
facts may never err …
but only faith with action
can make a heart stir.

I’ve learned since then
a lesson
that never fails to be …
in simple acts of kindness
my boy “sees” God, in me!
