Topic: Reward (09/27/04)

TITLE: My Greatest Gain

I see I have my own reward,
When Christ first appeared to me;
I am elevated above the horde,
By His truth, I am set free.

But this is only one of many,
To be gained in my Lord;
Assurance of heaven belongs to me,
This one peace, its own reward.

Plus a crown awaits for this child;
For withstanding this world’s strife;
How could I’ve known while in the wild,
This, my own eternal life.

Yet, for all that I’ve been given,
One reward stands above the rest;
All else is rubbish in fancy ribbons,
For knowing Him is the best.

Loved how the title and the last line work together. My greatest gain is knowing HIM.

Hi Bob. It is a lovely poem, but to be included in the judging of the Editors' Choice challenge, it has to be a minimum of 150 words. (Yours was only 102). Even if, in future, you just add a creative paragraph of introduction or conclusion to bring up the word count, that would do it. With love, Deb
