Poetry

Roses are red, violets are blue, Sugar is sweet, and so are you.

When’s the last time you read a poem?

John Piper defines poetry as “an effort to share a moving experience by using language that is chosen and structured differently from ordinary prose.”

Sometimes it rhymes. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it has a regular cadence. Sometimes it doesn’t. But almost always the poet has experienced something — something horrible or wonderful or ordinary — and feels that it must be shared.

The Bible is full of poetry. Leland Ryken writes:

“One-third of the Bible is not too high an estimate. Whole books of the Bible are poetic: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Song of Solomon. A majority of Old Testament prophecy is poetic in form. Jesus is one of the most famous poets of the world. Beyond these predominantly poetic parts of the Bible, figurative language appears throughout the Bible, and whenever it does, it requires the same type of analysis given to poetry.”

You might remember from your school days that studying poetry can be challenging. Perhaps that’s why people find that reading the Bible is challenging.

Tomorrow we’ll hear a piece of poetry from the Bible shared by John the Baptist. (Matt 3:1-6) That’s pretty cool!

Poetry gives us an opportunity to read slower, to try to think of things differently and to change the way we think. I think that was a primary objective of Jesus: to change the way we think. So let’s read the Bible, let’s read poetry and let’s be open to what God might be saying to us.

It won’t be the same without you, so we’ll be looking for you tomorrow at 9:00 & 10:30 am.

Grace be with you,

Vikki

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and amusing,
and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I am very happy I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.
