All Walk On

All Walk On
February 17
Proverbs 17:9

He who conceals a transgression seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates intimate friends.

The memory of sin in love’s mind cannot persist
the record of wrong in love’s heart does not exist
he who seeks love conceals transgression
not naivety but grace dictates discretion
for those that subscribe to love’s cohesion
there can be no guilty list adhesion
the return to a works based refrain
only results in prolonging pain
intimate friends are separated by unturning cheeks
grudges’ demands earn not what mercy seeks
in the driver’s seat of peace mercy will succeed
in sweet surrender there will be success indeed
evil is eliminated in every place
when it is wiped away by tidal grace
friendships are restored transgressions are concealed
and all walk on in peace with common fellowship healed
