Would You Still Be Called a Christian?
by Barbara Cagle Ray
Would you still be called a Christian,
If others could hear every word you say?
What if they read your inner thoughts,
And saw the places you go every day?
If others saw how you treat your parents,
Would the word "honor" come to mind?
And if they looked at the books you read,
Would you be ashamed of what they'd find?
How about the movies that you attend,
Could you ask the preacher to go along?
What about the kind of tunes you sing,
Is your character echoed in the songs?
Could the world see Christ in your life,
When with misfortune it was overrun?
If others could see inside your hearts,
Would you still be called a Christian?
