Imitating God

Imitating God
January 19
Proverbs 19:11
A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

There is a satisfaction found in grudge holding
and there is happiness in giving a scolding
to put someone in their place when they’ve done us wrong
can surely lead to a contentment lasting long
haven’t you been there when someone hurt you bad
and just the thought of them made you mad
but then you were able to bring them to their knees
and listen to them grovel with sobbing pleas

Well, there is pleasure in paying back a scar
but the glory of forgiveness is better by far
it might seem upside down and you are free to doubt
but it’s so much better when other’s sins you forget about
no kidding, it’s fun sometimes to be the judge
and it might seem right to hold a grudge
overlooking a transgression may seem odd
but peace inevitably follows for we are imitating God
