Wasted Time

by Ron Levi

Do not spend another moment filled with hate.
Do not spend time withholding forgiveness.
Do not spend hours at war with angry words.
 
Do not vilify anyone, especially the disagreeable ones.
Do not be a promoter of disharmony.
Do not forget you, too, are a sinner.
 
Do not pretend you love the poor.
Do not pretend you are righteous.
Do not pretend you are merciful.
 
Do not pretend Church attendance saves.
Do not pretend you care about those suffering,
Do not pretend this is a just country.
 
Do not pretend you believe He is coming.
Do not pretend you are Light in darkness.
Do not pretend you are obedient.
 
Now is the time to be a Vanguard of Glory, putting aside the triviality of life and purchasing love, grace, and obedience from the Lord.
 
Indeed, we have already wasted too much time.

One thought on “Wasted Time

  1. Thank you, Ron, for holding up that mirror and inspiring us to be better than what we see. Let us unshackle ourselves from hypocrisy, press toward the mark, and be what He would have us to be. “Vanguards of Glory, we have already wasted too much time.”
