Through years of Bible, though this may sound odd,
I can see clearly how to tick off God.
When you think of sin, if you do at all,
You may think of pride, Adam and the fall.
Or lust, greed, laziness, wrath, gluttony,
Hate, disrespect, Sabbath breaking, envy,
Thievery, blasphemy, adultery,
Dishonesty, murder, idolatry.
Or you may think self-centeredness is chief.
You may get close with doubt and unbelief.
Or not doing all the things you should do,
Reaching out to less fortunate than you.
To grieve God’s heart, draw a circle about
you and all you love, and leave Jesus out.
