Listen To The Lord

"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth." Ps. 46:10

When God speaks, you better listen,
And do as you are told;
You'll ignore Him, to your cost,
Just like these, in days of old:

Now Sodom and Gomorrah
Were so caught up in trash,
They wouldn't listen to the Lord---
So He turned them into ash.

And Lot's wife wouldn't listen,
So it was her own fault;
She looked back when she shouldn't,
And God turned her into salt!

The people back in Noah's time
Thought he was strange, no doubt---
God said, "They will not listen,
So I'm going to flood them out."

And Jonah wouldn't listen,
When God told him His wish---
He tried to run away from God,
But got eaten by a fish!

Even Paul, the great apostle,
At first put up a fight---
'Til one day on Damascus road,
God took away his sight.

There are plenty more examples;
In the pages of God's word;
Pay heed to them, and learn from them:
Learn to listen to the Lord!
