Higher Standard

Inspired after reading Micah 6, this poem emphasizes the need to focus more on our Creator rather than the hustle and bustle of this world. His standards are high and that is a good thing because we are told what is best for our soul. We can find what we need most in His Word and through His people.

Step Ahead

The world has low standards
But God’s standards are high
Coming down to us
From way up in the sky.

Spiritual assets
Take one far
Instead of a nice house
Or expensive car.

Worship the ONE true God
Accepting His mercy
With life changing power
To step ahead humbly.

Treating others fairly,
Doing things the right way
With kindness, respect,
And in what we say.

For the Creator
Of the beauty of fall
Made people his greatest
Creation of all.
