The Sin of Doing Nothing at All

By Unknown

He made no mistakes, took no wrong roads,

He never fumbled the ball.

He never went down ‘neath the weight of a load,

He simply did nothing at all.

He lost no hard fight in defense of the right,

Never bled with his back to the wall;

He never felt faint in his climb to the light,

He simply did nothing at all.

So death came nigh, for life slipped by,

And he feared for the Judgment Hall;

When they asked him why, he said with a sigh,

“I simply did nothing at all.”

So God will pardon your blunder, my friend,

Or regard with pity your fall;

But the one big sin that surely means hell,

Is simply to do nothing at all.

[Editor’s Note: Pardon on the Day of Judgment will only be extended to those that have washed away their sins and kept their sins washed away by the blood of Christ. However, the blood of Christ and the grace of God give no excuse to do nothing for the Lord and His bride. “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
