God’s Three Gifts To Man
God gave us all, every one
A special gift on the day of our birth,
A gift that is precious and second to none,
For how we use it decides the path of our life
And all the choices we make
While living here on this earth.
That gift is the gift of Free Will.
We can choose to do Satan’s bidding
For he is the prince of this worldly realm,
His path is easy, nothing forbidden
And if you foolishly swallow his lies,
He will deceive and destroy your life,
And finally, your very soul overwhelm.
There is no middle way
Between Heaven and Hell’s camp.
Within God’s plan for our lives we must stay,
By Free Will ask Him into our hearts
And receive in return His second gift,
Or by default with Satan’s army we tramp.
The second gift is the gift of Salvation.
If we choose God and commit to Him
He will guide our lives with His special plan.
His promises are true , not made on a whim
And whatever happens within our life span,
He will keep His promise of our final gift
For He has loved us since time began.
The third gift is the gift of Eternal Life.

|It's like that old song, "You gotta have faith, lot and lots of faith." Okay, I know it's "heart," not "faith," still it sounded good and it rang true. Excuse me Frankie, Baby. LOL You were so right, Jackie.|
