It is easy to be cranky,
And it’s easy to be mean.
So, someone who is truly kind
Is hardly ever seen.

Well that must be the reason
God tells us to be good.
For in and out of season
We don’t act the way we should.

It is hard to honor others—
Those who honor have not earned—
And to honor just like Jesus
Is a lesson hardly learned.

So, the world will do what’s easy,
But the Christian should do more:
Treating people as our Lord would
Is what Bible study’s for!

and for me, who always need this teaching. Sigh!
