Honesty Lost - Poem by william upton
God must get very tired (!)
Overseeing His gift of freewill.
His patience must be tried on a minute by minute basis
With trying to keep up with our deviations from His Word.
Even from the disciples-
It has never stopped since.
Today, deliberate lies,
Infiltrate daily life -no longer in a subtle way,
But in a blatant manifestation of wrong behavior.
From O.J.'s 'innocence'
To Hillary's emails,
To daily disregard of forthrightness,
We have allowed 'spin' to displace honesty,
To advance agendas,
To justify bad behavior,
To avoid punishment,
To mask wrongdoing.
We have paper shredded anything that has 'trust' on it.
Love of money and unhealthy levels of narcissism
Provide obvious paper trails to the root of the problem.
Long ago God created the world in 6 days,
And then He declared the 7th, the Sabbath, a day of rest.
He could see from the first bite of the apple in the garden,
He would need all His strength.
And He could surely see that He would not then,
And not ever
Be out of a job.
