THE PARABLE OF THE RICH MAN POOR MAN
1-17-07, Victory Park, by Carl A. Patton
Land and great houses was the natural baggage of the rich man.
For his cattle and horses stretched wide and the water
that passed through his land was deep.
Meanwhile his dreams were filled with love as his
great desire was to help those without. He loved
to see a smiling heart as only God could see through
As a listener to John and what he had been told he
helped to build the church. The sacred writings,
faith and his belief was his great treasure. This man
truly loved Christ Jesus. He was very rich.
There was also a poor man. Down home
He would be called Po. His Spirit was broken
and broke. He knew nothing of John
and what he had been told.
He awoke also in splendor as he had a great
house and many servants. He ate from the
fatted calf as his land and friends stretched
far and wide.
He had great influence, he was rich
and all the world hailed his
great wealth. But often he had little real joy.
What joy he had was confused with
happiness. As real joy only comes with
those that see eternal riches.
One day all of the land was flooded and
a foul smell came upon the people. The
cattle and horses died.
Fire from the sky struck the great house
and many structures were destroyed.
The servants ran to the hills seeking
help and all the jewelry, gold and silver
was devoured by the thieves coming in
However one man with land and houses
had a premium insurance policy.
He had faith in things eternal and not
things temporal. This man was rich
and not poor.
