ENVY OR LOVE

Posted on Updated on

 ENVY  OR  LOVE

I wonder if the red bird

Thinks he’s prettier than the sparrow.

I wonder if the bullet

Thinks it’s truer than the arrow.

 Do little fluffy kittens think

They are prettier by far…

Than the little darling puppies

Lying warming by the fire?

 How about the precious infant

Gazing up in mother’s eyes.

Is he thinking envious thoughts

As he binds those apron ties?

 No… we only learn to envy

As we also learn to hate.

Evil desire comes visiting

And shares our woesome fate.

 But there’s a wond’rous remedy

To getting rid of hate;

Jesus lived it and He spoke it…

In Matthew Five and Eight!

-Edna L. Ingram, 2/08

    “…Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”    Matthew 5:8
