Just Being a Friend

Constantly seek unity
Without impunity.
Humbly seek peace
That never will cease.

Care for others;
This should be our druthers.
Treat everyone the same
And glorify His name.

When making a decision,
Have great vision,
With concern for the well-being,
Of those God is freeing.

Ready for whatever;
To seek wherever;
Working out concerns;
Head on without turns.

Applying biblical beliefs,
Offering words for relief,
We can be the link,
That gets all in sync.

Connecting to God’s power;
For every hour;
For all His people;
As we gather at the steeple.

It may be a child,
Or friend that needs a smile.
With an issue at school or work;
Giving them a perk.

Offering ideas or suggestions,
Helping with their questions.
A great purpose in life
Is helping with their strife.

Not as a great preacher,
Or singer or teacher,
But just in staying,
Being there and praying.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
