Know Thyself

Bewildered

Matthew 5:37
New Living Translation (NLT)

37 Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’
Anything beyond this is from the evil one.


The Grooming of Ed

 

Be wilder Ed!

His mother would shout,

You’re far too tame

To in this world make out,

 

You try too hard

To just get along

You need to stand up

And sing your own song

 

You need to defend

What it is you believe

Otherwise people will think

You’ve got something up your sleeve

 

Just say what you think

And think it for certain

Don’t hide all your feelings

Behind a mysterious curtain

 

Let your yes be a yes

And your no be a no

And you’ll be surprised how much

People will think that you know

 

It’s easy to get along

If you don’t agree all the while

Just do it with grace

Just do it with style

 

Then you might even find

That you’re president one day

Cause all that it takes

Is to believe whatever you say

 

Cause integrity’s a rare thing

It’s a thing to behold

And to actually possess it

Is more precious than gold

Father,

Help us, in this day of far too many words, to speak the truth simply and honestly. May we be sure of our views and to hold onto them with great courage. We ultimately answer only to You. Thank You, Lord for caring for us so.
