UPLift Poem: The Words of Christ

I must confess: the first two lines are not mine, but I’ll credit the source.

The Word of Christ

  Heaven and earth will disappear,
but my words will remain forever.
Mark 13:31 NLT

Don’t neglect eternal truths
For pleasures that will disappear.
Don’t trade what you can never lose
For a moment’s want, for wavering fear.

Heaven and earth will pass away,
And all the treasures they contain;
Enjoy what lasts beyond today:
Forever will His words remain.

I signed up Saturday to the NLT devotional, Living Water for Your Soul. Today was only my second time to receive it, so I can’t say I recommend it, but it’s short and sweet.

Anyway, the first two lines of the poem above are the entirety of the devotional text received today. I noticed they scanned perfectly for meter in a four-foot line, so off we went!
