The Lord vs. The Laud

06 May

At loggerheads since forever: the Word and the World

Just so, things of my Lord versus things men laud

No solution will ever arise for such discord;

It’s like saying sword shouldn’t thirst for blood.

 

Why trade off salvation’s helmet to procure worldly garment

Thus forfeiting one’s inheritance of an eternal firmament?

It is simply an exchange of the Lord for the laud

Like trading His Fear for Fashion, swapping God for Stud.

 

If men I ever do seek to please

Then heaven will never be at ease

Why be earth-applauded but heaven-accursed

Abandoning the Almighty for flighty applause?

 

Why plunge at the offer of worldly acclaim and money,

when Your precepts stay ever sweeter than honey?

Why for attention go I hunting,

when scriptures tell me it amounts to nothing?

And why jostle to top earthly lists and charts,

when eternity’s been placed in my heart of hearts?

 

Eternity won’t pardon my barter of the Almighty

For worldly toys and trinkets that are far too flighty

And if ever, Creator, I aim at satisfying the world’s view

For a punishment, Maker, keep me perpetually with You!

 

Case in Point

An attempt at blending or merging the things of God with those of the world will, at best, be a failure. Know on who’s side you belong.

    The tale of two extremities. May we not be trapped in the lure of the Laud.
    But be comfortably wrapped in the warmth of His Love.

    Great piece as ever bro. May God bless your inspiration
