In 2 Corinthians 12:11-21, Paul shows his love for the Corinthians. It is a love similar to parents loving their children; postponing what they would like for the needs of their children. Paul had no self-interest but only concern for the Corinthians well-being. This poem was written to inspire this same kind of love in present times for future generations.

Step Ahead

From older to younger
There is this need
To show the Way
And how to proceed.

To give instruction
For the future
Of a better way
And clearer picture.

No more discord,
Anger or arrogance
But only seeking
The thing of relevance.

By looking for ways
Of being kind;
Loving the Lord
With heart, soul, and mind

Then loving your neighbor
As one of your own
So no one ever feels
Sad and alone.
