The Haves And Have Nots

There are the Haves and Have Nots, men living out their cast lots,
Living their life, are all of those, on a course they have not chose,
When or where they were born, or even why, as some have sworn,
Men all living out their daily life, some in peace and some in strife.

There are those who have everything, and in this they joyfully sing,
With all they need and all they want, for a lack of, they donít grunt.
All needs and wants, they possess, without even a second guess,
Where or how, they can acquire, their every want and every desire.

There are those with every need, so the family theyíre able to feed,
But, they donít have, every desire, that fleshly wants would inspire,
They may have very little to spare, in cupboards, humble and bare,
While knowing not what lies ahead, theyíre thankful for daily bread.

He who presently, does have a lot, may be in the future a have not,
While he, who has little my friend, could have much gain in the end.
All earthly gain is temporal at best; you lose it all, when laid to rest,
What you had your day of birth, you will have when laid in the earth.

While upon earth, did you secure, that Gift of God that will endure?
Godís enduring Gift of Eternal Life, through The Lord, Jesus Christ.
From Who, you gain eternal reward, when you know Christ as Lord,
Or bypass the Cross of Calvary, and youíll be a Have Not eternally.

(Copyright ©11/2009 Bob Gotti)

Heís coming very soon as the signs are very clear,
And when that trumpet sounds, weíll be otta here!
Praise God for our Great Blessed Hope, Who Will
Deliver All Those Who Believe, out of this present
World of Darkness into His Glorious Eternal Light!
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and Titus 2:11-14)

What A Blessed Hope, Bob Gotti

"All earthly gain is temporal at best; you lose it all, when laid to rest,
What you had your day of birth, you will have when laid in the earth."

Something to definitely remember!

To have faith in Christ is to have all we need.  Living it, spreads the gospel according to God's will.

You do both through your poetry lessons.  Thanks for sharing.

God bless,

We are all tired of this old world ruled by Satan the devil but God has his schedule to end his rule. We can be glad of that and look forward to that time soon.

"Godís enduring Gift of Eternal Life, through The Lord, Jesus Christ."

And that is forever.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
