Naboth’s Vineyard

20130706-114413.jpg

Naboth’s vineyard
was enticing,
well kept and
carefully tended.

The King saw it
and lusted.

He coveted
after
another
mans laborious
fruit.

It’s a recurring
theme in the
annals
of the
the Kings
of Israel.

Men who have
everything,
desire more.

And,
will stop
at nothing
to gratify
their selfish
needs.

To this day
we see men
hunger
for more.

Their
greed leading
us
to grievous
war.

I’ve prayed
the prayer
of the wise
King-

“Let me not
be too rich
or too poor,
and

keep me
from the
temptation
of unsatisfied
desire.”

Because,
In the end
it leads
to ones
destruction.

Poured Out Like Water

image

I need a drink so bad!
I’m longing
for a cold glass of water,
I wish I had.

I can’t wait to swallow it down.
Refreshing my parched thirst,
which really hurts.

Remember, King David fighting all day.
As the Philistines
surrounded the
Bethlehem way.
He articulated his
Heart’s desire…

His men overheard
his pleas.
Valiantly they
rushed to meet his
needs.

Men of honor fought
to give the King of Israel
a precious cup of water.

Slowly he poured
the libation,
before The LORD.

“God forbid, I drink the blood of my men”,
The King so eloquently said.

It’s hard to grasp
How the King stayed his lust?
When all I can do is brood
over a cold glass of water.
