2Sa 23:17 And he said, Be it far from me, O LORD, that I should do this: is not this the blood of the men that went in jeopardy of their lives? therefore he would not drink it. These things did these three mighty men.
What You Ask For
By Arley Steinhour 031712
Praising you Lord, started my day,
An hour early, it began,
Quickly, you did fill my tray,
No space for Satan's 'also-ran.'
This Seventh day, Your Sabbath,
The one Day You did declare,
For our Faith to take a Bath,
Refreshing our Spirit Fare.
Breakfast was a taste-bud win,
Eggs with tatters, on the side,
Bott Radio, teaching about sin,
Story: David, Cool Water, and Pride.
Second Samuel, Twenty Three,
Verse fifteen starts the story,
About things folk want for free,
Causing hazard, or wasted glory.
David, yearned, cool water sip,
From well, at gate of Bethlehem,
Three mighty men made the trip,
To provide sip-pleasure, just for him.
Enemy, they had to fight,
To obtain that water, cool,
There and back, took the night,
Without wound from sharpened tool.
Proudly, they placed, in David's hand,
A flask, filled with his desire,
Ah yes, they were his mighty band,
No man they honored any higher.
David knew the danger's sway,
So, sip he refused to take,
Poured it out, unto Yahweh,
In Thanks for their 'Safety' sake.
The men were some adither,
But, the story rings deep and true,
'Wants, that may harm another,
Lends no benefit to You.'
Ravi Zacharias, the teacher be,
That simple truth, he did teach,
Truth with depth, like crystal sea,
Sand made of diamonds, within reach.
When you read your Bible book,
Challenge what the words do say,
Deeper understanding, the hook,
Catching Believers, every day.
