Our Walk Must Match Our Talk

Explanation of the following poem: I commented on a post by Julia May, and I noticed today she had made a comment on my comment, about there being so many rhymes in my comment, and that I should write a poem. I could see the humor in her comment, and I honestly had not thought about the rhyming of my comment. Julia is a dear Faith Writers friend, and I appreciate her very much. So, Julia, here is your poem, and I hope that in addition to the liberty of making so many rhymes it will convey messages that might cause the reader to reflect. I do hope no one is offended by my liberty to take advantage of repeated rhymes to write a little poem. We all need a little fun now and then. God bless.
Our walk must match our talk.
Those of us who profess must also possess.
Our actions should not be others’ distractions.
Our words we should taste before we speak with haste.
Don’t seal your fate by continuing to hate.
We ought to take heed to what we read.
We should put our trust in the One who is just.
Jesus has the plan for eternity’s span.
If you don’t read the Bible, God will hold you liable.
The best way to start your day is to pray.
Try not to offend he who is your friend.
A prosperous day cannot be all play.
The end of the rhyming; now I just want to say, “I appreciate all of you who bless me with your wonderful articles and poems. Keep writing for His glory.”
I like every line of this poem. Yes, we must walk the walk and talk the talk. I think its a nice one to use to covey the message to great and small. Simply put with clarity of the truth. Love and blessings! Oh and Amen to this sermon. :)
Thomas, I love your little rhyming piece... plus it conveys a message of truth!! :) A writer uses words to paint the picture he/she wants the world to see... just the same as a painter uses a brush and paint.
