Threats and Encouragement: Acts Poem 4

San Barnaba.jpg
Barnabas by Anonimo Lombardo – Public Domain

John and Peter – ordered not to speak

“There will be trouble – if that’s what you seek”

Of such troubles – their community did not despair

For they worked together – for each other’s care

Belongings shared – so all had some

Barnabas an example – “Encouragement’s Son”

And so the fledgling church –

Though in official displeasure’s receipt

They like Barnabas – joyfully laid blessings –

At the Apostle’s feet


Acts 4 – Poem four for February 4th.
