01-26-2024 Sirach 11 V14&17 Riches poverty death life evil and good




The Book of Sirach Ch 11 v- 14 & 17

14 Good and evil, life and death, poverty and riches—all are from the LORD. 17 The Lord’s gift remains with the devout; his favor brings lasting success.


My poem today reflects how the Lord gives us everything we have no matter the instance yet the devout remain His prize possession of love, faith and hope of Salvation. Enjoy the poem and may God bless you for living a life of generosity for goodwill. Amen.


Eternal Life for the Devout


In the realm where light and darkness meet,

Where the Lord’s gifts of good and evil compete,

Life and death dance in a cosmic duet,

His devout find solace, their hearts truly set.


For in His wisdom, He weaves a grand design,

A tapestry of moments, both yours and mine,

With each breath we take, His grace intertwines,

Guiding us through valleys and peaks so fine.


He gifts us with life, a precious treasure,

A chance to learn, to love, and to measure,

The depths of our souls, our truest pleasure,

In this mortal journey, we find our own leisure.


Yet amidst this gift, lies the shadow of death,

A reminder of our time has a limited breath,

But even in darkness, He offers a promise,

Of Eternal Life, beyond this earthly closet.


For in poverty, He reveals our true worth,

A chance to find riches beyond this earth,

In humility and grace, we find rebirth,

And His devout find lasting success, a true mirth.


So let us embrace both good and evil,

For in their union, we find the primeval,

The balance of life, the joy and upheaval,

A testament of His love, a Salvation retrieval.


For His gifts are abundant, beyond measure,

To His devout, He grants endless treasure,

In the dance of life and death, we find absolute pleasure,

And His grace leads us to everlasting refresher. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
