The Joke’s On Us

Jolly

Galatians 6:7-10
New International Version (NIV)

7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.


How Jolly?

How jolly can you be
When all that you can see

Is pain, death, and destruction
All paid for by corruption

Whether in a land far away
Or the hood you walk everyday

How happy can you become
When they tell you to overcome

But the rent goes up every year
And we live in mortal fear

While the kitchen cabinets are bare
Cause there’s never enough food in there

How much hope can fill our hearts
When the schools are just a farce

And what we learn is of no real import
So it will not take us to where they purport

Therefore we are left dangling like a leaf
In the wind of reality without relief

So when we become full of deceit
And you by some small chance might meet

One of us on a dark and lonely avenue
And you wonder what we might do

Don’t give it a thought
Or become overwrought

Just remember to go with the flow
Cause we all must reap what we sow

Father,

Your mercy is great and Your patience is long. Be with us and open up our hearts and minds to those who need our help. Let us be blessed with wisdom as to how best help those in need.

Thank You, Lord!
