Feeding the Beast in Me

Kopp Disclosure
(John 3:19-21)


"Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought..."



    He often warned, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

    And she meant well; but her gift feeds the beast in me.

    A beautiful porcelain keepsake for hanging: "Jesus Loves You...But I'm His Favorite!"

    It unsettles me because I've often acted not just thought that way.

    If it were not a struggle still, would it bother me so much?

    The beast must be starved; so it must go.

    Just a jest?


    Yet, to me, no laughing matter.

    My sanity if not soul sways in the balance.

    It would have been better if they had come calling with condemnation: "Expecting much more, you've disappointed us."

    That's not funny either.

    Just closer to the truth.

    He always assured, "The road to heaven is paved with..."


"The difference between us is I know I'm a hypocrite."



Blessings and Love!
