Look for the Good

When I seek out things you do wrong

And point my finger at your face

I don’t invite you to belong

Or welcome you with God’s embrace; you miss His song.

 

God sings of love and forgiveness,

He leads us to a restful place

And wants to take away our stress.

He fills us with His perfect grace; our souls to bless.

 

babybitternSo if you feel your anger raise

Do not allow this curse to win.

Extinguish it with words of praise

To God and friend or foe or kin; learn Jesus’ ways.*

 

Easy to find the good in friends

But that is not our mission here.

To all His sons we must attend,

His daughters we must all hold dear; our bonds must mend.

 

For linked we are as common heirs

And look for good in all; we need

To keep our Savior’s quest to bear.

His invitation keeps us freed; His constant prayer.

 

“If you love me, obey my commands.” (John 14:15)

 

*Matthew 5:22,43-48; Luke 6:27-33,36

  1. Amen Susan. So good. I think of Phil.4:8…”whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” And that we are to return evil with good. How easy it is to forget this and focus on what others have done to us, wanting retribution. But that is so counter to following Christ.

    Thanks for such a great reminder of who we are as we enter into a new year! Blessings.
