Together is Better

Live with integrity;
Building a great trust.
There will be clarity
And a society that is just.

Respecting each other;
Celebrating successes;
Wishing one another
The ridding of stresses.

Asking for God’s help
As each uses their gift.
Where encouragement is felt
And words always uplift.

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.

One Response to Together is Better

  1. Mark Shields says:

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    Reading in Genesis 43, Joseph invites his brothers to dinner and respects the Egyptian customs. His brothers show respect to Joseph and humbly give gifts. Respecting others and understanding how important each person is to God is so important in living together in this world so I wrote this poem to inspire how we interact and encourage each other. Have a wonderful Super Bowl weekend!
