Unconditional Love

(A sentiment for Easter)

 

“Love them like the Lord”

 

A question was asked in class today

About a father with a son who has gone astray

And a major conflict between two religions

 

The first one says, “Love your fellow man”

The son’s new belief says, “Put a gun in your hand

And shoot the innocent as if they’re clay pigeons”

 

Should we be afraid? Or should we take a stand?

 

We should love him like the Lord… God Almighty

Before he goes too far and picks up a gun

We should love him like the Lord… God Almighty

Our Lord never told us to judge anyone

We should love him like the Lord… God Almighty

And God has never forgotten the Prodigal Son

 

A question was asked in class today

About a daughter and a son who say they’re gay

And the parents that are shocked by their confession

 

The secular world says it’s just fine

What use to be wrong is now completely sublime

But they ignite outrage where there should be discretion

 

Should we be afraid? O should we take a stand?

 

We should love them like the Lord… God Almighty

Before anyone crazy thinks to pick up a gun

We should love them like the Lord… God Almighty

Our Lord never told us to judge anyone

We should love them like the Lord… God Almighty

And God has never forgotten the Prodigal Son

 

A question was asked in class today

‘Bout a whore at the door in the family way

And whether we should allow her to enter in

 

Just because the world sees a lost cause

Does not give us permission to judge all her flaws

Especially when none of us is without sin

 

Should we be afraid? Or should we take a stand?

 

We should love her like the Lord… God Almighty

Before anyone crazy thinks to pick up a gun

We should love her like the Lord… God Almighty

Our Lord never told us to judge anyone

We should love her like the Lord… God Almighty

And God has never forgotten the Prodigal Son

        It adds to the mystery, Pretty Lady… ha ha And I never was one to follow the crowd with either this or that.

        You are a sweet-talker, JW. ❤️
        I’m going to catch tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead, then head off for bed. Goodnight and sweet dreams.
