Pleasing God - Serving Others - Poem by Mary Wismer
Therefore if there is any encouragement,
if there is any consolation of love,
if there is any fellowship of the Spirit,
if any affection and compassion,
make my joy complete by being of the same mind,
maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit,
but with humility of mind regard one another
as more important than yourselves;
do not merely look out for your own personal interests,
but also for the interests of others.
with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart,
not in the way of eye-service, as men-pleasers,
doing the will of God from the heart,
rendering service with a good will and not to men.
