End-The end of all things are at hand, Be sober-minded with your prayer; Be self-controllTime Ethics



The end of all things are at hand,
Be sober-minded with your prayer;
Be self-controlled with the demand,
Be diligent handle with care.

Keep loving of one another,
Since love does cover many sin;
Treating like sister and brother,
As tolerance helps discipline.

Showing your hospitality,
To each other without grumbling;
As to increase your dignity,
In which will keep you from stumbling.

Each of us has received a gift,
As good stewards of varied grace;
Serving others as to uplift,
To comfort them and to embrace.

Whoever speaks, will speak for God,
Whoever serves, serves what He gives;
Serving and speaking shows to laud,
Is an example how one lives.

All things that God has glorified,
Christ has dominion forever;
As spoken, you have testified,
Of a love that will not sever.

Richard Newton Sherrer

I was born and raised on a farm in Pennsylvania. It was a small family farm that was handed down through 8 generations of Sherrer men until my father; Newton just could not make a living from it any longer. He thought that I would make a better living away from the farm. So, I decided to join the Air Force in 1969 upon graduating from high school. I gained quite a bit of experience and insight on life while in the service. Even though I was only stationed on the east coast of the US, my Air Force career took me to Germany and Korea. After 20 years wearing of the blue uniform, I decided going in a different direction and found myself becoming very diverse in many different fields. Something still seemed missing to me after being separated from the service for about 10 years. The Air Force was a way of life for me, but really missed life in Korea. I found myself changing careers again. Poetry was an interest of his since my days in high school. With returning to the Lord, I felt motivated to write of my Christian beliefs. I started looking at Bible verses and reflecting on my own personal experiences. The Bible was found to be as true today as to when the various books were written. I could see much of what the Bible is teaching us as valid as every in modern time. It felt only natural to me on using his personal experience based on Bible verses and see much of my own life written in the Scriptures. God inspires me what to write about though. I do not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. I am just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures. more…
