When all is said and done

Is more said than what’s achieved?

Has the mouthpiece of our words

Boasted in its evil deeds?

When all is said and done

Have we kept our noble word?

Is integrity of real importance

Or a trait we can’t afford?

When more is said than done

We allow our arrogant pride,

And all of its presumptuous ways

To manifest in its stride.

Do we make a stance for morals

Or pretend to really care?

Do we value the true ethics

Or we’re neither here nor there?

When all is said and done

Do our works align with scripture?

With God’s loving and eternal ways

That paint the bigger picture?

It’s not too late to change our ways

As our ignorance God understands,

But He commands us to sincerely repent

And to follow His commands.

When all is said and done

We will need to give account;

To our marvelous Creator

As we discover what really did count.

(C) P.B. 2019

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world….”

Acts 17:30-31
