No room for hatred

No room for hatred
by Joel Howard
2 Samuel 19

Forgiving Shimei
David did
Forgiving those who
Hated him
Hating would leave no room for me
To reign over those I'm leading

Forgiving brothers
And men who
Scoffed, ridiculed
Hated you
Pardoning for
You already know
Where God has sent you
Him you know

"I have no room to hate you and yours"
David said for 
He knew that God had made him king
He needed not 
The competition Shimeis
would bring

No room for hating
No room for hatred
No room for scoffing
No room for competing
No room for we
Know that we
Are loved
Placed here
By Jesus the King
No room for
altered identity
No room
For we are we
