God Is In Forgiveness Poem by tony haynes


From the smallest infraction
Our reaction
Represents who we are spiritually
God is in forgiveness
In that obscure fiber
Virgins still comprise to the purest degree
Exclusively God is in forgiveness
Naturally He would be
Everywhere but this is where unaware strayed
So there, the child in us is spoiled and demands we
Spare no rod…

…God is in forgiveness - and in forgiveness we find God

And our inability to forgive - puts God & us at odds
How can we truly live If we can’t forgive like God?
