Imitating God

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
