Haughty Eyes & Love

Faulty assumptions

Mistaken unctions

The flesh does not have

one fruitful function

Passive aggression

A wicked regression

Saccharine veils reveal

pitch black obsessions

Take care, my child

when opinions rise

Scant understanding

is rooted in pride

Gossipers balk

suck and puke out

choice morsels

Lurking and spying

exposed in the shadows

Note spying or silence

The lash, then the quiet

A gnash, sugar coated

is subtle, but violence

The Father of lights

seeks peace and speaks life

A lover will pause

but a fool inflames strife

Take care, my dear

when such temperatures rear

That simmering anger

is rooted in fear

God is above

and speaks peace, like a dove,

"Better is open rebuke

than pretend hidden love"

Been a minute since I rolled out a slam poem. You know, half of Psalms is slam poetry. 🙃

Never be too proud to meekly embrace the grace of God's thunder. He gave his son for our freedom.

"Do not be burdened again to a yoke of slavery." Galatians 5:1

📖 Inspired by the following Proverbs:

🌻Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses. Proverbs 27:5-6

🌻He who answers a matter before he hears it—this is folly and disgrace to him. Proverbs 18:13

🌻Without wood a fire goes out; without a gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts. Proverbs 26:20-22

🌻A perverse person stirs up conflict, and gossip separates close friends. Proverbs 16:28
