Grow Up - Motivation & Inspiration - by Alfred

1 Peter 2:2 KJV
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

    Every child can choose to remain a kid forever (by remaining childish & immature) even though they are advancing in years and their physical body is growing bigger.   
    However, life would life would still bring tests and trials for grown ups their way when they reach a grown up age; even though the individual has choosen not grow up and live childish ways behind.
    In the same way, if you become a Christian you need to begin to grow up or else you could be a Christian for 50 years or more and still be a Baby Christian.

How Do Grow Up & Continue To Mature In Christianity?:

1) Start Learning God's Word:

Acts 20:32 KJV
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

By learning more about God's Word via reading the Bible, reading good Christian Books, & listening to quality sermons (in audio or video format).
    Sermons in church alone are not enough because you won't be doing to church every single day to hear a sermon.
     No church holds good teaching services everyday that I know of and even if one did you can't restructure your life to revolve around going to one particular church every single day.
     You would need to listen to good teaching daily to renew your mind and knock out the world's way of thinking from you so can start

2) By Doing The Word:

You need to put the Word of God you hear or read to practice.
    That means, you have to do the word.

James 1:22-24 KJV
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [23] For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: [24] For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

    How do you do the word?
    For example, when you read "by his stripes we were healed" (1 Peter 2: 24).
    You put the Word to work by healing yourself the next time you feel sick or someone close to you gets sick.
     When you read that you should be thankful even when things go wrong (Ephesians 5: 20), you put that Word to work by being Thankful whenever things go wrong in your life.
     When you read that "the Lord shall prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies" (Psalm 23: 5),
     You put that Word to work by not worring but expecting a table of blessings the next time you find yourself surrounded by enemies or people who don't like you and wish the worst for you. Right then you remember the word and expect a table of blessings.

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Rather Than Hate The Rich, Become Rich - a poem by Alfred

Crucify the Rich, Burn them at the Stake/
Punish them for succeeding, where the rest of us has failed/
Their Remote controls the State like the TV channels they made/
Only 1 per cent are safe, 99 per cent are slaves/
Occupy the 1 per cent, Hello to Project Eliminate/
We don't need rich people in the world, walk 'em to their grave/
Like Marie Antoinette, and then We Would Eat Cake/
All Rich People are Evil, Greedy, and Really Vain/
Away with Rich people, Let us dig their graves/
They plan to dig ours, I can see it in their ways/
Who needs the Rich to build Banks, Skyscrapers, and Planes/
Who needs the Rich to build Rockets to take us to Outer Space/
Wealth can't create more jobs than poverty makes/
Poverty is what this country needs, take wealth away/
Destroy the Rich to make the world a better place/
I hate Rich people, even though I work all day/
I'm sure it's no so I could be Rich some day/
And if I get Rich I would give it all away/
Because I hate Riches, I'…
