What does it profit a man to win the whole world but lose his soul

We teach our children our faith because we want them to be good.

——————

We want them to be good, kind, caring and loving

————

We want them to be patriotic

————

We want them to be honest

——-

We do out best to give them the best

————

We teach them that giving is good

—————

Our God gave too

Till the very last drop

—————

How far will our children go

Will they follow our example

Or His

————

Will they speak up against injustice

Like he did

————-

Will they suffer

People’s jeers

Like he did

————

Will they rage in anger

When his house

Is desecrated

———-

Or will they stay

Meek and humble

Like he said

————

To the people

Who were powerless

————

Are we teaching our little ones

What we want

Them to know

————

Are we teaching

Them to rant

Against abortion

And gay rights

————

When the mortal

Sins

———-

Hide within us

We do know

Our conscience pricks

But we prefer

————

To swallow

————-

A

The sugar coated pill

————

Without experiencing

———-

The bitter agony

————

Of our sins

———-

For which He’s still dying

————-

On the hill

———-

Our kids

————

They deserve better

———-

They need to know

———-

Our true God

———-

They need not

————

Rattle off

———

Their prayers

——-

He taught us

———

Only one

———

They need not

Recite the decade

———-

They need not read

————

Deutronomy

Or Numbers

———

What they need

———-

To understand

———-

Is the core

Of His teaching

——-/

It’s very easy

For a child

————

To understand

————

Love your neighbor

As yourself

————

Your neighbor

Is Humanity

————

And the rest

———

Of the Universe

———-

And teach them

———-

Like Him

To give

———-

To the very

Last

——

Drop

By Jyothsna DSouza

I’m at home
With my children
With plenty of time
To read, teach, and muse

I believe if you have
The capacity
To do good
And others
They confirm
It is good
If it’s important
For many,
Not one
One must persist
To the end,
Till all one’s
Resources
Are exhausted

Man lives on hope
