Let no one ever scorn or mock your youth,
Be an example of the Word and the truth;
Exemplify in life, faith, purity, and love,
Just how we receive blessings from above;
Heed to the reading in teaching of the Word,
Never neglect the gift God gave as an award;
Be diligent in this allowing it to abide,
Then proclaim to the world of gifts inside;
Take heed of the Word and that is taught,
Keep living by them as you should ought.
The Bible is a Book of Law but also a guide,
Showing us how to live and should abide;
You would think that it is outdated and old,
Actually all the info is still good as gold;
Human nature has not changed all the years,
Deep inside in having all the same fears;
Maybe a little more high-tech in our lives,
But still have temptations that lust drives;
Remember that we still have the same God,
Who is there to help knowing we are flawed.
