Bible-taught love


Dear Child of God,
teach others about true love:

Let the older men know
to show self-control,
thoughtfulness, and wisdom
with sound faith, patience,
and a pure love
that endures.

Let the older women know
to live with reverence
for God and life,
avoiding too much wine
and unkind words of any kind
as they teach what’s good
and show young women how
they should respect their husbands
and love their families –
becoming their biggest fans!

Such behavior will reflect well
on the Word of God.

And, as you urge young men
to show control, let your life
display a sure way to integrity,
gravity, and pure speech
that speaks well for each
of us in Jesus’ Name
as true love puts evil to shame.
