Did You See?

by Victoria Dillen


See the neighbor up the street

Did you know his wife he beats

See the child running there

So-called friends gave her a scare

See the teen dragging his feet

Someone dared him to cheat

See the girl walking alone in the park

Raped, her life is torn apart

See the man all filthy and dirty

He only knows he is hungry and thirsty

See the woman hiding behind that smile

Her husband is divorcing her in awhile

See the child without warm clothes


Lack of a loving hug really shows

See the man looking at his watch

He can hardly wait for his bottle of scotch

See the grandma with the cane

Did you see her lonely pain

See the youth who tugs and shrugs

An anxious junkie awaiting his drugs

See the crying children’s tears

They have so very many fears

See Christ dying on the cross

Did you know He died for all the lost?


If you saw all of these

Would it bring you to your knees

Would your love of Christ bring you to tears

Would He change your heart despite your fears

Would you pray to try to help these

Please…

Luke 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same. 34 And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

Luke 6:36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

James 2:15-17 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

1John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

 

1Peter 3:8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

1Peter 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
