    You roll til you roll out of control.
    With no regards to other people
    or how you affect their soul.
    You use love like currency
    You make moves like everything
    is an urgency.
    You ask God for mercy
    But you show no mercy
    You want respect but
    you show no respect
    You don't want to be
    rejected...but daily you
    reject the attitude that
    goes with self respect.
    "Do unto others as you
    would have it done unto you!"
    But you so mean to yourself
    There is no telling what you
    won't do.
    Heart black with hatred over
    violations of the past.
    If God withheld his forgiveness
    just how long do you think we
    would last?
    Sinner or Christian
    Moslem or Jew
    the same does apply
    for all of you.
    Forgiveness is not optional!
    IT IS MANDATORY!
    If you take a little time to
    read the Holy story.
    Then you know all about
    the redemptive glory.
    What he requires and what
    he expects... we have no
    excuse and we should offer
    no less!!!!!!!
    FORGIVENESS IS NOT OPTIONAL
    IT IS MANDATORY!
    He who died once replied,
    "Love ye one another as I
    have loved you."
    It may take a little work
    but it is something we all can
    do...WHAT ABOUT YOU?
