Speaking In Tongues

Speaking in tongues is a gift,
not meant for everyone.
It’s being packaged and sold
as the top sign of a new birth.
It is not.

I don’t buy into the idea
that every confessing Christian
must pass that test.
The Holy Spirit should already
be living in us
and it was definitely
not meant to be abused. 

I don’t know about you
but I’d rather have discernment.
With all the garbage
going on these days,
even the very elect
will be fooled and I don’t want
to be one of them.

I know I cannot
pick and choose
which gift will be bestowed
upon me but I also will not
fake my way into the
“speaking in tongues” family.
