FORGIVE TODAY

Forgive Today!

Unforgiveness is a monster
It wears the soul faster than cancer;
Like a sword that shows no pity,
It pears the hearts of foolish men
In whom it finds a resting place

Unforgiveness is a thick darkness
It drives God far and shuts up His grace
But opens wide doors to the evil one
To hatch and breed his vipers
Whose stings kill now and eternally

When hurt by friends and folks
Then comes our way the chance
To pardon like our father does
Who is rich in mercy towards all
In whose image we are made

He didnít say we wonít be hurt
He never said offence wouldnít come
But He said we can be like Him
Though we dwell in this mortal frame
When others we pardon just as He does

How could we have paid the price
If God were to charge us for our faults?
But He chose to forgive us
That we may do same for others
And never hold them in our hearts

He who does not forgive is a slave
Held captive by the wicked one
He has no part in Godís grace
Till he has learnt to let go
Or wail and mourn eternally

Forgive today not the next
Forgive before the sun sets
He who forgives is Godís true son
Through him the fatherís image is seen
Godís mercy shall ever be his

This was awesome. the word "offense" is spelled this way, with an S, just thought I'd tell ya :) But this poem speaks so much truth, we all have unforgiveness in our lives that we need to deal with, so God can complete His good work in us, and so there is no "offensive way in us." God bless.

I've somberly forgoten your name but havn't unheeded your poem about forgiveness.Truly it has touched my heart. Considering all life's hurts buried in my heart; i need to let go and let God.What I also like about this poem is its simplicic beauty that carries a simple-but profound truth almost forgotten by the world.It takes the guess work out of Christianity and WOULD the world be a better place if people would take heed to that eternal truth. Keep on sowing those devine seeds-Arnost

Forgiveness is a wonderful thing, for by forgiveness we enter into Heaven. Thanks for sharing.
