Shine Ministry
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-16

Let Love Grow
By Dena M. Hall
8/29/2004

LET LOVE GROW
 
God has planted a seed inside your heart
It will grow a little each day
But for it to really flourish
You must nurture it along the way
 
There are some dangerous things
That will harm the growth of your seed
So you must always keep it trimmed
And prune away anger, hate, and greed
 
But it thrives upon good deeds done
To a stranger more than a friend
And the feeling you get from just being nice
Without a benefit from them in the end
 
And humbleness is most important
To help your seed become tall
For it is much better to get up from your knees
Than it is to fall
 
So Let Love Grow within you
With your flower for all to see
And others will want to nurture their seeds, too
Because they'll know how great God's love can be
 

Hebrews 13: 1-8, 15-16; Luke 14: 1,7-14
