A Parable Based Poem (Luke 14:28-32)

There is so much to research

When making decisions

So many options to weigh.

We don’t just go and do,

Decide and like

First we search all night and all day.

Before buying a house

We research our credit score,

Get our mortgage preapproved

See what we can afford.

We save for down payments

And review closing costs

All before our first bid,

So no money is lost.

We perseverate.

We investigate.

We deliberate-

We do not quickly decide.

An investment as big as a house,

Should not be made in one stride.

Or imagine a king

Wishing to go off to war

“Get ready your armor”, he shouts

“Sharpen the blade of your sword”

Wait! He must wait! There is much to discuss

To debate; Premeditate.

Before the battle-is a must.

Would he not first sit down and meet round a table

Discussing their chances of woe?

Would he not first calculate the size of each army?

Before deciding to stay or to go?

For if he does not first look

At what may be ahead

Thanks to poor calculation

His men, His Kingdom, Himself

May all soon be dead!

Now of greater importance

Than either of these things

Is the choice of WHO GOD IS

And what that choice brings.

Don’t be quick to decided,

Give your life or

Say your prayer.

Understand the risk,

Understand the cost,

And then go on from there.

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” ― A.W. Tozer
