Why Can’t They See?

Cloaked

Job 15:31
New International Version (NIV)

31 Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless,
for he will get nothing in return.


Deceived

There are many who are cloaked in fraud
Who as wolves in sheep’s clothing reside
Always greeting us with a warm smile
Behind which their mischief can hide

But much worse than any of them
Is the deceiver whom we call a friend
Who greets us each day of our life
That charlatan who lives deep within

Oh! How devious is his disguise
As in the mirror he so cleverly hides
Passing judgment on everything
He needs only himself to decide

So surely we all should beware
Or our lives will be coming undone
For from all other evil we can flee
But ourselves we cannot outrun

Father,

We cloak ourselves in pride and pass judgment on things we do not know or understand. Please grant to us discernment that we might judge rightly. Lead us through the darkness of this world and keep us safe.

Thank You, Lord!
