Rules We Live By

I enjoy writing inspirational poems and this one is inspired by a sermon at my church. This day with God, share a thought from one of the great sermons you attend in your community or on a podcast.

Step Ahead

There are rules we live by
And they are our guardrails;
Found in His Word;
Lighting our trails.

These rules give us
His design for living;
Blessing those who
Constantly are seeking.

These rules lead us
As we grab His hand;
Living by the Word;
Keeping His commands.

These rules are the guide
For each and every decision
As we meditate on His Word;
Or seek a pious vision.

These rules make
The world a better place.
Gives society good standards
And inspire to win the race.

These rules help us
To invest instead of spend.
Aware that eternal treasures
Reward without end.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
