If you could trade places for the better, wouldn't you do it?


 


Trading Places


By


h. lena jones


 


 


If I said trading places was easy


 


Would you think I was crazy


 


Short-sighted


 


Or lost the plot altogether?


 


If you had a chance to trade


 


Hatred for love


 


Sadness for joy


 


Arguments for peace


 


Impatience for patience


 


Unkindness for kindness


 


Dishonesty for goodness


 


Doubtfulness for faithfulness


 


Harshness for gentleness


 


Rashness for Self-control


 


Would you not trade places in a flash?


If you’re willing, He’s willing!


 


“The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against these there is no law!”


Galatians 5:22,23
