Suzy set out the snacks and flavorful punch.
Tidied the couch, the chairs and such.
Ran the vacuum and dusted, so all was clean.
Sprayed air fresheners and made windows gleam.
All in preparation to impress the group.
Hoping to seem righteous in the spiritual loop.
Trying to gain favor by her acts and deeds.
Not for God, but for the attention she needs.
Ellie wants to please her Father above.
So she opens her home because of love.
She teaches scriptures to help others grow.
They learn righteousness by the example she shows.
All in preparation to teach the group.
Itís not all about some spiritual loop.
For Godís not impressed by an act or deed.
He wants us to know that Heís what we need.
Are we a Suzy, or an Ellie in our church?
Do we seek people, or is God where we search?
God should be the focus of our Christian walk.
It should show in our acts and how we talk.
For this reason we should always strive.
To set the example by our daily lives.
So others see Christ in all we say and do.
Yes! I want to be an Ellie; how about you?
