Scripture Verse

The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:24–26

They say the world is wicked
And everything gone wrong;
That men are always faithless,
And none are true and strong.
But oh we must remember,
That in our fight with sin,
If we will help our brother,
He may fight through and win.


Speak gently to thy brother,
Speak only words of love;
For we must help each other,
Until we meet above;
Speak gently, speak gently,
Speak only words of love,
For we must help each other,
Until we meet above.

The world will surely tempt us,
To run the sinful way;
Our hearts will often draw us
From God and Heav’n away,
But then we must remember,
That if we’re always true,
And seek to help each other,
That Christ will help us, too.
