I refuse to be a goat. Therefore, if anyone has need of my earthly possessions, come and take them. But is the receiving of my perishable things truly clothes and food for you? Still I will not hinder the thief.
But are you a wise one? Are you able to distinguish between the perishable things of this world, and the things which I have that are eternal? Will you have the things of mine that only last one day? Or will you be bold and ask for the things that never fade.
I refuse to be a goat. I refuse to hide His property. Since the day and the hour are unknown, I will busy myself with the things of God.
I look around and see the signs of the end of the age. I remember the seven woes spoken. I know whose son is the Christ. I understand the greatest commandment.
I will pay my taxes to Caesar but I will render my things to God. The wedding banquet remains invited. I will not listen to the wayward tenants who care for his vineyard, even to this day. I will not question the authority of Jesus. Lest I become as the fig tree.
By His Grace
