We are all bought up to think a certain way
We are all bought up by people having their say
But what might have been wisdom way back then
May not be truth but only have been a trend.
What is taught to us as gospel is only culture
That help prop up their communities wobbly structures
So when you tell people to think & change their mind
don't be surprised when they see it as a crime.
You have to give people time to clear their mind
give them grace because this can take much time
Wisdom will teach you transition is what they need
while they think about what you want them to heed.

how the baptism of the Spirit bought much apprehension
the new covenant puts people in unchartered waters
give them time for their thinking to become broader.

from old laws and ways to a brand new outlook & mission
When speaking to people about seeking His face
remember they only know methods and not His grace.
