Forfeited Joy



Joy is the feeling we all wish to recieve.
Yet as christians we don't always want to believe.
Most of us only pray when were're in trouble.
Yet when we ask God is there on double.
Why do christians pretend to be filled with the spirit from the LORD?
Yet on Monday when I see them, oooooh was it fraud?!
Why are Christians stingy with their tides and offerings?!
Don't we know we can't take it with us in our coofin.
So to conclude,
as you've been reading my poem,
are you living the life as a christian should live,
or are you just living?!
