If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!Luke 11:11-13 NKJV
I don’t dabble too much in poetry, but here’s a little something that is part of a series of poems I wrote.
Dear child of stone, What will you be? What will we make? My child of stone. Stone is very hard, But words are harder. Stone is colorful. But it can be dimmed. Stone can’t fit in a frame. But pressure will break it. Stone can be hard to move. But nature finds a way. Stone can be anything, But we force it in roles. Stone is seen everywhere, But each is different. Some stones can hide steel, But that means they break. Small stones can be glass. But that means they melt. Dear child of stone, What will you be? What will we make? My child of stone.
