Forbearance

(Poetry Scales 34

As the people of a God who loves those that hate Him
     should we not be defined by forbearance?

Cowboy Christianity says fight the enemy,
     but the Christ of the Bible gave His life for us.

Don’t take sin of others as an attack on your morality.
     It is not you that they’ve rebelled against.

And that moral superiority, as sin it’s a big one.
     Remember, you’re given victorious assurance.

Try to act like a gracious winner, open and inviting;
     not a petty, pharisaical arse.

     It is not who we are.
