Treat all you come across as if your kin
No matter what their attitude to you;
Affection’s manufactured with a grin,
And kindness feeds the heart with love anew.
If you would soon forgive your child’s mistake,
Then do the same for everyone you meet,
For God will soon forgive you for Christ’s sake,
Yet if you pick and choose you’re incomplete.
A man who’s cordial only to his friends
Will miss the need for Christ in stranger’s eyes.
Should we not share the love til journey ends,
And are we not all friends in some disguise?
Be kind to all you meet just as your guest,
It might be you who’s needing to be blessed.
And be ye kind one to another,
forgiving one another,
even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32 KJV
