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
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.
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.
