Seeking to Serve in Attitude and Actions

When you feel challenged
Because you know the standard

Treat other people 
The way you would like to be treated
And God knows
He's nobody's fool

It may not be easy
It may make you squirm and heave
But try to take the high road
Do the right thing


By His strength.
By His grace,
By the Holy Spirit in you,

Then it can be said,
It can be true,
People get a glimpse of the Father,
in you

This is exactly when
You are making the right choice
To serve the Father
The tri-une amazing God

May His light shine through you and me,
His children may we forever be.
Thank you Father, for the hope and help that I have through Jesus.  Help me to be loving, gracious, and kind, even when I would prefer (in the flesh) to be much less.  By YOU in me, I strive to be the best I can be.  The standard is YOUR WORD.  The goal is your love and mercy.  What you extend to me, I shall seek to forward the kindness.

  1. Ooh! I needed this one today. I just had a student be less than polite to me when I offered to help. I have to always remember "whose I am, and whom I serve" as Acts 27:3 says. Great poem!
