ADD TO MY FAVORITES
Not to find fault in others
Rather my eyes would focus-
On the good of my Sisters and Brothers.
That I would be more concerned
With my life, and how to please you
Not focused on the actions of others
Lest, I believe things that are untrue.
Because If I concentrate on others
Then my walk with you I neglect
And the root of bitterness will spring up
And in my heart I will feel the effect.
You have told me in your Holy Word
That this bitterness will defile me-
So please Lord, if it springs up I pray
That from it I will surly try to flee.
I pray I am clothed with goodness
And show love in all my ways
Even if I feel I've been wronged-
That your forgiveness I will display.
I am a member of your family, Lord
I would never want to be set apart
I pray you will fill my thoughts-
And your love to others I'll impart.
So, rather than finding “faults”
I want to focus on all their good
And live in peace with one another
As your word Lord, tells me I should
Lord, this is my earnest prayer
Please hear from me once again
And grant me this plea, I pray
In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Hebrews 12:14-15 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; (KJV)
Ephesians 4:31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: (KJV)
