The Body in the Word

~

The tongue is so little

But boasts great things.

~

A rope in your nose

Can lead you anywhere.

~

A mote in your brother’s eye

Is less than a beam in yours.

~

The ear hears words

But heeds not wisdom.

~

The mouth chews food

But not healthy fare.

~

Renew the mind;

Prove what is good.

~

The heart beats sure

But holds deceit.

~

Fill the stomach

With food and water.

~

Wash your hands;

Don’t throw stones.

~

Beautiful feet

Has the preacher.

~

God’s fingers shaped the world,

The earth, moon and stars.

~

The body of Christ redeemed

Sinners like you and me.
