Trends

Guest Post by Maurice Dyson

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth.
2 Timothy 4:4

Today we are seeing a trend
Of violence and crime without end;
A breakdown of law
As never before;
A climate we cannot defend.

For now in these lattermost days,
Behaviour has reached a new phase;
The misuse of drugs
By pushers and thugs,
Grows darker the longer it stays.

We all have a part in this scene;
For no one is perfectly clean;
The overall cure
Is lasting and sure,
If we are receptive and keen.

There’s nothing that humans can do,
To get themselves out of this stew;
The work has been done
By Jesus the Son:
Salvation for me and for you.

The Lord has given Maurice Dyson a wonderful ability to take a passage of Scripture – a story, a Biblical character, a principle of truth – and present it in poetic form.

His aim in writing these poems is to teach people about the Lord, and to draw us back into the Scriptures, so that each of us would search out the wonderful things of God.

This poem is from his book 100 Poems of Praise: Christian Poetry to Praise God.

We would like to thank Mr. Dyson for such a timely poem.
