What sweetens your tooth and what entices your tongue?
A parable for the end times.
Close your eyes
And incline your ears.
This is a tale of two helpers
Both kind to their causes,
Both warm to their own clauses.
Consider the first,
(His clause saying take),
Short in stature
But intimidating in tone
Nevertheless, he always gives you all you desire:
Sweets your parents always forbade you from,
Toys uncles told you you did not need
And garments friends told you were too expensive.
He gives it all.
Now consider the second,
(His clause saying come),
Meek in nature,
Tall in height –
So tall my neck bends back in awe –
His face too bright for even the Sun to see.
His voice an irresistible enticement
His present containing far beyond what I need,
Filling me up till His wants become mine.
Now, search your heart child
And pose yourself this question:
What has been sweetening your tongue,
The forbidden fruit
Or the fruit of the Spirit?
Do you feast on the cursed fig tree
Or the Tree of Life?
Are you a child of gluttony
Or a child of wholeness?
Only one helps satisfy the soul,
Only one helps kill the flesh, child.
For the LORD is coming.
