THE PARABLE OF THE RICH PO MAN (POETIC PROSE)
BY Carl A. Patton 4-27-08
In the world that looked as a distinction between
God there was a man that the world by its standards
thought was poor.
He described it as Po as he had not the resources to add
another “o” nor “r,” so he was Po John are just Po John.
As he made various transitions upon the land the hand
of God rested on his shoulders as he knew not that
he would come but God knew.
Meanwhile he never knew as he walked, ran and
crawled toward his conversion that he was Po. He
heard the word in a blues songs as his brethren
cried out about the experiences of being Po and Black.
But as he was blessed to see the Father and embrace Christ
he began to count his blessings. These blessings were counted
as riches as he stored them in the heart not the bank.
Was this man Po and Rich? Just how can you be Po and Rich?
Just what is Po? Is being Poor the same thing as being Po?
Is there a different poverty for some people? Can anyone that embrace
Christ as their Savior with a sincere heart be Po (Poor)?
Just how do the riches of God and Christ feed the Po?
What is the good in knowing God and Christ and being what the
world describes as Poor?
John, now rich noted that the world does not ascribe anything
to the righteous. Our inspiration and authority comes from God, Christ
and the Bible. We also look to prayer, resting on faith and patience.
There will come a Great Day for all that remain in righteousness. Along the way the
Word will feed us and we will find the joy, comfort and hope in Christ.
