Happy New Year and I trust everyone made it safely to this day. For those who follow my website, I have mentioned that I am going to change the morning readings in favor of doing an in-depth analysis of the prophets. My intention is to bring all of the puzzle pieces of the Bible together using outside resources as well as bible scriptures. If you have positive critique or input I would love to hear and read about it. The ultimate goal of this approach is for the reader to see for himself/herself what the Lord is saying to her/him. At no time will there be any references to the politics of our time. With that said, I leave you with a poem.
The Man in the Glass
When you get what you want in your struggle for self,
And the world makes you king for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that man has to say.
For isn’t a man’s father, mother, or wife,
Whose judgment upon him must pass.
The fellow whose verdict counts most in life,
Is the man staring back from the glass?
He’s the fellow to please, never mind all the rest,
For he’s with you clear to the end,
And you’ve passed the most dangerous and difficult test,
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass.
But the final reward will be heartache and tears,
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.
