Poem: Just A Little Yeast…
Evil triumphs where good men do nothing!
When ‘ordinary’ men underrate the power of their ‘little’ contribution, they quit trying. However, evil triumphs when good men do nothing, and what is required for our desired change starts with little things…
Few good men
to speak the truth
Few praying men
to stand in the gap …
Few upright men
to uphold the arm of justice
Few hopeful people
to dream of a brighter tomorrow…
Little noble acts
Little brave tendencies
Little words of faith
Little deeds of kindness
Jesus told them still another parable: “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A woman takes some yeast and mixes it with a bushel of flour until the whole batch of dough rises. Matthew 13:33 GNT
standing against corruption
rising against oppression
insisting on justice
Few strong voices
to speak for the poor
Few strong structures
to support the human family
May our collective ‘few‘ good deeds add up to exalt this nation and attract Your Supreme intervention!
