1000 Flowers


A Christian should be like a bee: whose spiritual devotion hours
Must sip and taste a thousand flowers.
Take from each church what they do best. One church perhaps excels at singing
Join them: send your spirit winging.
Another church expounds the Word. Attend there to their faithful preaching
Drinking eagerly their teaching.
Another recalls history. Learn about the martyr’s story
How the saints have entered glory.
Pentecostals seek God’s gifts. Learn from them to hear the Spirit.
God’s voice speaks today: let’s hear it!
Another doctrine teaches well. Learn here good theology
What’s orthodox, what’s heresy.

But limit self to one church – you’re prisoned by infernal power.
Like a bee with just one flower
You will starve within that bower.
Your honey gone. Your dreams turned sour.
