For the Love of God

family gathering for a group hug

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16

For the love of God, we proclaim, journeying along this way.
Endowing us with wisdom, to love one another, day-by-day.

Let us find grace, peace, and favor in God’s eyesight.
So, that mercy teaches us to think, speak, and do right.

Let us be charitable when we can.
And offer kind words, help, and hope as somebody’s friend.

Let us love our neighbors.
And break bread with strangers seated at our tables.

Let us seek peace, health, and wealth for all.
And not cause others, to feel belittled, downtrodden, or small.

Let us be quick to forgive.
And value everyone, demonstrated, by the life that we live.

Let us have enough joy to not be tense.
And always act, with prudence, gentleness, and good sense.

Let our little light shine for the world to see.
And then shall we declare, our Savior, has set us free.

Let us pray and never lose hope.
And face each challenge knowing, because of our faith, we cope.

Let us count our blessings.
And consider setbacks, heartaches, and failures, as life’s lessons.

Let us be renewed each morning.
And be careful to give God praise, with each sun rising.

For the love of God, we will persist, be happy and do good.
So, that we can live this day as Jesus Christ taught, we all should.
