Monday Memories: Be a Doer

This faith-based poem was written in October, 2019, and it was inspired from reading James 1:22-24:  “But be doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who deceive of themselves.  For if any are hearers of the Word and not doers, they are like those who look at themselves in a mirror; for they look at themselves and, on going away, immediately forget what they were like.”

Actions speak loudest for ourselves

Walking in a Christ-like manner

Be a doer of God’s Word

God builds with a benevolent hammer


God calls upon each of us

Acting in faithfulness each day

Be a doer of God’s way

He always knows what to say


Being responsible with life’s rewards

Witnessing God’s work on this earth

Be a doer of God’s Word

Docking our ship at God’s berth


Our blessed Lord sends His harvest

Leaving us with a bountiful taste

Be a doer of God’s Word

Listening with intent, never in haste


Reading the Holy Ten Commandments

God declares all that is good

Be a doer of God’s Word

Now following all that we should
