Contradiction

Lord I give you my mouth.. but it’s okay to curse, to speak badly of those who speak badly of me.

*whilst praising your name, down on my knees*

Out of my mouth proceeds blessing and cursing.

That’s only fair, that’s how it should be.

 

 

Lord I give you my ears.. but I’ll listen to the music that I want to. Little do I know,

the seductive beat,

is slowly desensitizing me,

to the toxic lyrics promoting sex drugs and money. It poisons my mind

but i’ll renew it in the morning.

 

 

Lord I give you my eyes.. but i’d kill to watch some reality TV.

People cheat, people lie, and somebody almost always dies!

It’s just entertainment.

I still love you, don’t I?

 

 

Lord I give you my mind.. well some of the time. I entertain the lust. The envy. The greed.

The things I long for, the things I need.

Hours at a time i’m lost in this maze.

It’s all false

ignoble

and not worthy of praise.

Luke 15:8 These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

What are you saying? What are you hearing? What are you listening to? What are you thinking about? Honoring God is deeper than spoken words. How much we honor G0d is reflected in our lifestyles. God loves us more than we can ever imagine. Love him back with all of you!

Prayer: Lord help me to love you more than the things of this world that so easily entice. Lord give me a heart hungry for your word, and give me strength to let go of things that don’t honor you. In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
