Shallow Roots

Itís almost that time again; yes, Easter is almost here

One of the two times; we fill the church each year

We show up on those Sundays daring to be blessed

With a sanctimonious smile; better than the rest

Weíre shallow rooted people with half hearted praise

With a pharisaical attitude and self-righteous ways

Pretending to enjoy the service but quickly we depart

Feeling right about ourselves; but a coldness in our hearts

What has happen to our zeal; that joy when first saved

Have we backslidden that far; have we stored Christ away

Why have we turned our backs to all that is good

We remember Him, donít we; nailed to that wood

Dying for our sins, a debt we could not pay

Then raised from the dead; just as the scriptures say

Now He sits beside the Father for us He intercedes

Covered by His blood, when we repented and believed

So this year, on this Easter, when we look upon the cross

Letís remember how we felt; when we were cold and lost

Letís remember the circumstances; of how we received

And that special touch, when we first believed

Irv, many christians go through the valley, the shadow of death, or so it seems to their spirits. We get stretched. Many of us don't like it, and try to avoid it. When we stop pressing in, we drift ever so slowly away from our first love. I like the title, Shallow Roots. This reminds me of the parable of those that took root, but was not deep and the withered away. Great poem! Blessings.
