 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

Respect those who labor,

Over you in the Lord;

Cautioning your neighbor,

To be in one accord.

 

Edify each other,

Comforting together;

Reassure your brother,

Wherever you gather.

 

Esteem them very high,

In love because of deeds;

Do not ever deny,

Of what your brother needs.

 

You need to be at peace,

With yourself and others;

Let hostilities cease,

With sisters and brothers.

 

Admonish the idle,

Encourage the faint heart;

What they are capable,

Beginning a fresh start.

 

Be patient with them all,

While helping the weak;

Catching them if they fall,

Assist on what they seek.

 

Payback not for evil,

Always seek what is good;

Avoiding the devil,

By doing what you should.

 

Give thanks as you rejoice,

And pray without ceasing;

As you lift up your voice,

Shouts of joy releasing.

 

Quench not the Spirit,

Prophecies not despise;

Think what you inherit,

From a God who is wise.

 

Hold fast to what is good,

But test everything;

Think of things that you would,

That righteousness does bring.

 

Say an oath to the Lord,

As I charge you to read;

To keep in one accord,

For helping to succeed.
