Humble Saints

From Blog10


Humble saints
Do God's work--
No complaints,
Build the church.

Will not boast
Over men.
Trust God most;
Flee from sin.

They won't swerve
Left or right.
They just serve,
Day and night.

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. --Ephesians 4:15-16 ESV

The photo is of Priscilla. She and her husband have been married for more than 60 years. Both sing in our church choir. Priscilla decorates two bulletin boards each month.
