Moving sidewalk (poem by me)

We met on a moving sidewalk
going in opposite directions;
They stopped only for a moment
to taunt me with a sarcastic question:
Why do you go to bed at nine
while we stay out til three?
They joked about my dirty robe
flaunting flashy clothes and jewelry.
Although they jeered at me
and my precious Savior too,
all I felt for them was absolute pity—
that’s all I felt; it’s completely true.
That’s because they couldn’t see
and wouldn’t listen to me tell
they were on a moving sidewalk
guiding them to the gates of hell.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.—John 3:16

If you have found yourself on a moving sidewalk going the wrong direction, please consider making a change. Your path to Christ can begin right now with this prayer of salvation: Lord, I trust You with my soul. I believe Your Son died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay for my sins so I can live eternally. Thank You for my salvation! In Christ’s Name, Amen.
