Duty Towards Offenders

A Sonnet For My Foe


My dearest foe, oh, how I think of you

You occupy parts of me no one knows

 I am restless with the storms that you brew

YetI feed my anger and my pain grows


I am to live differently, He says

Love my enemy the Bible teaches

But you my foe always get in my way

Of living a lifetime filled with riches


The harsh reality of selfish sin

Pollutes my thoughts and feeds every fear 

I will turn to the One who lives within

Whose grace is enough to make this path clear


In my weakness, He will be glorified!

Seventy times seven times!
