How do those leaves expose bright, vivid colors -
that are seen throughout autumn's day,
when those same leaves in the darkness of night
are simply a cold shade of gray?
The works of the flesh are futile and worthless -
when cloaked in the darkness of sin.
Only grace proves God's light is so brilliant -
and faithfully shines truth within.
So even the greatest of all Christian trees
can't be proud of colorful deed -
but humbly drop several acorns around
while faithfully planting the seed.
