The Right Picture

Questions from those who oppose
May be from the wrong premise
Giving credence to their way
And present a menace.

Spreading fake news
That some have clicked
With wrong assertions
That have many tricked.

With the wrong perspective
Or wrong point of view
That trap many 
Into the coup.

Instead, follow the Truth
That is life-giving
Written in the Word
With guidelines to living.

Learn from Jesus
Within the scripture
And trust Holy Spirit
To give the right picture.

Poem by Mark Shields – © 09-15-2022

This poem is inspired by Mark 12:18-27 when the Sadducees questioned Jesus. They wanted to trick Jesus but Jesus was prepared. He wasn’t trapped and we can learn from the Way of Jesus. The Good News prepares us all for the fake news so get the right picture from the scripture.

  1. Amen. This is it:

    “Learn from Jesus
    Within the scripture
    And trust Holy Spirit
    To give the right picture.”

    May we all learn from Jesus today.
