Press on, keep on sowing what is good

“Dear friends let us love one another, for love comes from God.” 1 John 4:7

Love in the heart makes us more conscious of

The pain and suffering we meet on the way,

New strength is found while helping another,

Let’s be tactful in what we say.

We can’t meet a kindness without God’s approval,

He rewards in His own special way,

As we cast our bread upon the waters

He says it returns after many days

Though some words are short, they leave behind

Welcome echoes of courage and grace,

Thus giving another the confidence needed

The rest of his journey to face.

True, life is a mixture of many things,

Teardrops, pleasure, laughter and pain,

Press on, keep sowing what is good

And the Lord will bring forth the grain.
