The Keeping Of Faith Rewards - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Too many confuse the having of faith,
With a purchase made.
And ability to impress.
To believe themselves as favored.
And blessed with 'things' to get.

Too many confuse the having of faith,
With a purchase to be made.
As they look down upon those homeless.
And step over those with less.

Yet,
Those who self-indulge will one day suffer.
And those who sacrifice,
With a doing it most of their lives...
Will be promoted.
To heights they never knew they could be raised.
Since to worship things one has should not be praised.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
The doer who's devoted.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
The doer giving up love.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Good deeds free of evil.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Those who face their challenges,
And doing this to forgive.

Too many confuse the having of faith,
With a purchase made.
And ability to impress.
To believe themselves as favored.
And blessed with 'things' to get.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
The doer who's devoted.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
The doer giving up love.

Too many confuse the having of faith,
With a purchase to be made.
As they look down upon those homeless.
And step over to degrade.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Good deeds free of evil.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Those who face their challenges,
And doing this to forgive.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
And not to address impressions.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Those who are bold and tested.
With a living of life to confess...
They've been blessed.
And,
It's expressed.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
And not to address impressions.
The keeping of faith,
Rewards...
Those who are bold and tested.
With a living of life to confess...
They've been blessed.
And,
It's expressed.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards.
The keeping of faith.

The keeping of faith,
Rewards.
The keeping of faith.
