A Poem for Thought

Gambling Perspectives & Precautions

Life today, we have to use much cautions
Help us Lord with money in using
Gambling perspectives & precautions

Greed for money can make for incautions
Ignoring how to one's soul abusing
Life today, we have to use much cautions

Possession under control takes cautions
Where one has free will in choosing
Gambling perspectives & precautions

Love of money can change a person's view
In making decisions that leaves one hurt
Only to after does one have a clue

If to this one avidly does exert
Continuing down to destruction
Harm to one's soul is then insert

Love of money is an abduction
Life today, we have to use much cautions
Help us Lord in it's construction
To use gambling perspectives & precautions

Thoughts: Trading of skills, services, and goods does still exist in parts of the world; heck all over the world. However, most the world today live their lives through acquiring and use of money. Thus, inevitably have to utilize the use of money. But the love of money and in acquiring it in any means possible, can turn one into a greedy person; which, greed being one of the deadly seven sins made possible in living in this world. In using money today we have a limited choice due the functioning of today's governmental institutions of society. It is love of money that has created our current means of utilizing money. For example: We put our money into banks, trusting that it is safe. This truly is a gamble when we do that, but much of society functions in this manner. We end up gambling with our money when we use banks, being not in control, rather governmental institutions are and are being greedy in controlling our hard earned money. In a personal perspective; although, I do not like banks, how else am I to function in today's government run society that controls how we use our money? It's when we use these monumental governmental tools of society in unneeded and unnecessary gains where it becomes a love of money and can create unnecessary and sometimes unwarranted strife in one's life and to one's soul. In other words; knowing, right now, we have to use certain societal tools when it comes to our money, we can still be cautious of not getting greedy with these tools. It's called free will. Also, in the investing arena, we gamble our money every day. It's part of that arena. My perspective on this is, investing is not a bad thing, it only becomes bad when one invest more than they can afford to loose; thus, implementing greed on the hope of high gains. That’s gangling! The love of money can turn one into a very greedy person; thus, can greatly affect one's person in straying away from the faith and their possible entrance into heaven. "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1 Timothy 6:10. NKJV). Avidly and unnecessarily gambling with one's money, that God blessed one with, is the love of money. In today's world of a governmentally institutionalized society, it takes gambling perspectives and precautions in not becoming a greedy person in straying away from one's faith in God.

Holy Spirit- Acrostic Poem

"But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him." (1John 2:27. NKJV) "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13. NKJV). "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." (John 14:26. NKJV).

Two poems preview for "Growing Strong in The Lord - part one"

  Here two more preview poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord Collection. These are from where I left off in my Part One previews. I will be mostly posting preview poems, as promised, from my published books. Rarely will you see a new poem here on this site. These two poems from my Growing Strong in The Lord- Part One, "I Am Sowed By God's Words" , came out of knowing God was with me during an impact with my car and a full grown and huge doe deer. I listed these two poems just days apart, as I still felt the grace God delivered me that fateful day; reminding me of His grace and presence throughout my life.  It's Not Luck, But Grace ⭐ When one is thrown a curve ball Like something unexpected takes place That can bring an unforeseen pitfall One holds tight and does brace As one calls on the Lord above all He then sees you through this place In the aftermath you then recall The Lord got you through, you embrace For He can, no matter how big or small And then you rea
