Camp (1)

I read and reflected on the Bible book of Joshua a few years ago. In the book of Joshua there is a strong emphasis on obeying God’s law. This poem is based on a reading of a passage in that book of the Bible. So here is the poem:

 

 

God’s commands keep us safe

That’s why God helps us obey them

 

By grace we receive them

Then God helps us obey them

 

There’s a lure to do wrong

But the command is still good

 

With God’s help

We say yes to God

 

And no to wrong

Without God

 

We are weak to obey

The commands God designates

 

They are for our good;

Not to harm

 

But to make us stronger

Than we would
