A Code of Conduct

A Simple Plan


Matthew 22:37-40
New Living Translation (NLT)

37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”

A Simple Plan

What I needed to face the world
Was a plan that would prevail,
Some sort of map or paradigm
That could not stall or fail,

It had to be both true and fair
To everyone’s separate ways,
And yet not deny what I believed
In all that it conveyed,

A simple way to meet all men
That should not cause disgust,
A way to spread the truth I know
That would not breed mistrust,

I was about to give up and quit,
This quest seeming to be in vain,
When I remembered these wise words
And all that they could attain,

“Love God with all your heart, soul and mind”
“And love others as if they were you”
There is no better plan to end the hate
And give the respect that all are due.
