Mary Jane Q Cross -- Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

This meaningful painting and the accompanying poem are important reminders to not let evil into our souls in any way. The poem would be a wonderful one to memorize! It reminds me of Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.|" 

 Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

In the light, in the dark
Evil is the flammable spark.

Hear no tales whispered and nice,
with bitter bites small as lice.

Behold your ears take gently in,
Honesty, truth, as its kin.

Heart will settle and beat its best
when tickled ears have their rest

See no troubling forceful views
or memory plays its violent news.

Momentum builds and fear takes hold
inward fast, too soon, grow old.

Guard thy eyes, let dark depart
will protect the budding heart.

Speak not what's been heard in haste
salt to pepper its troubled taste.

Words that lead to hell and back
will leave behind a treacherous track.

Say only words sweet and clear
be sweet and right to every ear.

So, hear no evil, see no lie,
speak no evil, God”s pleasure will sigh.

By Mary Jane Q Cross
