Sailing through life, with heart sin-laden —
Viking warrior, tired of invadin’;
Now sings he new songs,
For to Christ he belongs:
Forgiven! — at peace, he’s done raidin’!
COMMENTARY: See Ephesians 4:28 & Acts 20:35. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Giving is worth more than taking, in light of time and eternity. Even some of the Vikings, historically, learned this valuable lesson, as is recorded, repeatedly, in the old Viking sagas. (The original idea for this limerick came from “Dunraidin”, the Viking Longhouse model constructed by historian Dr. Bill Cooper.)
