Now we exhort you, brethren,
warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded,
support the weak, be patient toward all men.
1 Thessalonians 5:14 KJV
We have our own responsibilities,
And that includes a call to help the poor:
The poor in heart, in mind, in strength are these
That need some extra care we can’t ignore.
Admonish those that step across the line:
The busybody, troublemaking sort.
Teach discipline and selfless service fine;
These diamonds in the rough, do not sell short.
Uplift the ones who struggle with the cross:
The simple and the slow to understand.
The weak need love who cannot bear a loss;
Please help them with their faith and to withstand.
Have patience with the souls who trip and fall;
Be one to help them up. See Christ in all.
