I Don't Know Much About Mr. Haggard, But . . .

When a Brother Falls . . .

It’s easy to point the finger,

Even easier to wag the head,

But unless we learn their lesson,

It might be us instead.


For when we judge our brother

Instead of judging his sin,

We’re falling right into the trap,

And Satan’s won again.


The Stronger should help the weaker,

Fallen need help getting up,

If this we will remember,

Satan’s plans we will disrupt.


“For ye who are without sin

Start casting the first stone,”

And before you know what’s happening

You’re standing all alone.


So drop the stone from your hand

And instead of walking away

Drop to your knees beside the one

Who can wash the sins away.


Jesus wants the entire world

To come to his repentance

And he can wash away your sins

Before I finish this sentence.


So, become your brother’s keeper,

And set him on his feet,

Making your tomorrow brighter,

When his sins you don’t repeat.

Greg Stier here. My wife and I read your post on my blog and wanted you to know we were praying for you and your little girl this holiday season. May God wrap you both in his arms of comfort.

I also read your comments on Greg's blog and my heart goes out to you and Lily. May you find strength and courage in the Lord as you raise your beautiful daughter! I clicked through your blog and I can see already that Lily is blessed to have you as her daddy! You're doing a great job. Be encouraged by that today. Have you read Danny Oertli's story?

Through the valleys, God never leaves us and I know he has amazing things planned for your future.

Blessings!
