Living God's Way

Love God above all,
With your heart, soul and mind.
This is the greatest,
Command you will find.

Love one another,
Your enemies, too,
Pray for them also,
This is God's will for you.

Do not be angry,
Always forgive.
This is the way,
Jesus wants us to live.

Give to the poor,
But don't make a scene.
Remember, God the Father,
Sees everything.

Let the good that you do,
Be done for the Lord.
Don't look for man's praise,
Or you'll lose your reward.

Don't collect riches,
They'll disappear fast.
But store up in heaven,
Spiritual treasure that lasts.

Don't cheat on your spouse,
Keep your eyes free from sin.
Make Christ your sure focus,
So temptation won't win.

Do not worry about,
What you eat, drink or wear.
Your Father in heaven,
Is always aware.

He knows what you need,
And He'll provide what is best,
If you seek first His kingdom,
He'll take care of the rest.

And last, but not least,
In all that you do,
Treat others the way,
You want them to treat you.

    Your poem gives soundly based advice.. Biblical truth is the seed that grows great faith. It's great to see poets stand by their spiritual heritage.... May you be richly blessed...... Jake

    There is a lot of sound advice here, right out of the Bible. I enjoyed reading this one.

    the narrow path is no laugh, though it is one of many, other paths get in the way, but they cost a pretty penny....
