Seven Things

This poem was written in response to today’s Daily Prompt: Seven.

Seven things are dear to God:
a broken and a contrite heart,
truth that ever our souls entice,
obedience better than sacrifice,
an open hand that gives generously,
then there’s something called hospitality,
a man with faith is always pleasing,
loving Him and others without ceasing.
These things bring joy to Christ
it’s a pity we do not suffice,
on the contrary, we’re so trapped in vice
to the point where He laid down life.
So, here is an eighth item
we can add to the list:
mankind He brought back to His kingdom;
and there we’ll be if we in Him persist.
