A Set of Scruples

Last year’s peace protests have left us bereft; untold violence, fires, murder and theft. As long-held morals find themselves interred, society reaps a conscience that’s blurred. Peer pressure rules the day, threats from the “gang” dictate, Cheap counsel chosen, Boomerang! Bounce back, enroll as one of God’s pupils; His Word teaches a fine set of scruples.

thank you, Alexis, I welcome your commendation. Also read your winning piece on Morality; excellent advice, bringing to mind, "train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he'll not depart from it." Duet. 11:19.

thanks, Mark, for the comment and for the placement inyour contest. Great topic for these days when dishonesty reigns in DC. Our nation's a bloomin' mess. My prayer is that regardless of politics, the citizenry will remain hopeful through a faith in God not government.
