Truth and Power

This poem is inspired from 1 Timothy 1:1-17. The relationship of Paul and Timothy as described is like a father to a son. Paul left him at Ephesus to contend with the false teachers who were deceptive and had their own interest in mind. The thought received is that love is produced from a pure heart that is filled with faith and wants others to succeed.

Step Ahead

False doctrine taught
For personal wealth
Instead of the TRUTH
For spiritual health

Those who deceive
With own interest in mind
Gain for themselves but
Leave others behind

The TRUTH of the Word
Gives direction in life
The power to change
And overcome strife

A pure heart of love
Along with faith and hope
Gives much more than
Just how to cope

With the power of love
From Maker of nature
Let go of the past
And grab the future
