Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

Sometimes we can get caught up in debates that don't really mean anything. We need to move away from trying to “win” the debate and instead strive to seek truth together.


We play a game of tug-of-war:
I try to drag you ’cross the line,
But find myself face-down in mud,
And all my nagging won my shame—

It’s sad we spend our time in battles
To try to pull each other down,
There are so many walls before us
Which take us all to work together—

If we can learn to work as one
And laid aside our tug-of-war,
We’ll see that naught can stand against us
When we abide in Christ with love.

Amen! May this be so with the North and South issues still being a hot button. May the bigger picture of mutigenerational healing through reconciliation be realized and God's higher plan be sought.

Great insight - I wasn't thinking of North and South issues when I wrote this poem, but it is an excellent application of it.
