Equal in God's Eye

REFRAIN

What does sets us above the pack;
the throng, the herd the mob?
And, do all these most righteous things
bring us nearer to our God?

Does walking upright, head held high
give clear sight from aloft
thus showing those who walk on four
as merely God's cast offs?

   What does sets us above the pack;
   the throng, the herd the mob?
   And, do all these most righteous things
   bring us nearer to our God?

Do denizens of air and sea
fall farther from God's grace,
And, are the golden buzzing bees
so damned to be erased?

   What does sets us above the pack;
   the throng, the herd the mob?
   And, do all these most righteous things
   bring us nearer to our God?

Or, will we find on judgment day
bound to, entombed surprised
when we realize all God's creations 
are equal in His eyes.

    We sure are lucky to be one of His creations and must be grateful for He has given us the mentality to choose what is right from what is wrong unlike his other creations. A great write, Sami

    So beautiful for His word says HE REIGNS UPON THE JUST AND THE UNJUST. FOR WE DID NOT CREATE OURSELVES. Have a beautiful week. Simmplissity

    It is God's grace upon our face that answers all these questions. When little lambs and puppy dogs beguile us with their charm. How could we think of doing them the slightest bit of harm. I know this got a little off the track, but all God's creatures deserve concideration and respect. Even rats. :) I guess. :) Great poem Debbie, wonderful reminder to be kind.

    Hi Equal in God's Eyes conveys a wellness that lives within.. "golden buzzing bees seems almost fairytale-like. This is one to read more than once! Thx, Jan

    This is a great message, Debs. I like how you did it as a ballad. That form has such a quality about it. The repetition lets one's thoughts sink in.

    Such fav to the eyes that ponder the beauty of God's creatures and the pen that gave it power, Rxxx

    Its SIN-dee. Hi! I especially like the last stanza. Ends just as it should, strong. I finished my short story for the paper and hope to get back into writing and reading tomorrow. We had a lovely day out- preschool, library, restaurant, and a free outdoor concert, Santa in a sleigh and dancing around the tree. PLUS my girl is having no. 2 potty success FINALLY. We are having a potty party tomorrow. (Yeah. I'm weird. A loving weirdo mother. LOL) I'll go back to Dee in a day or two. :) xox
