Kilmer: The Kings of the earth

Tuesday, August 21, 2012
    The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.
    —Psalm 2:2 (NIV)
The Kings of the earth are men of might,
And cities are burned for their delight,
And the skies rain death in the silent night,
    And the hills belch death all day!

But the King of Heaven, Who made them all,
Is fair and gentle, and very small;
He lies in the straw, by the oxen’s stall—
    Let them think of Him to-day!
    ... Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918), Joyce Kilmer: Memoir and Poems, v. I, New York: George H. Doran Company, 1918, p. 169 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your have conquered Your enemies with meekness.
