Galatians 6: 3-5
“… For all in and through Christ should compete
Not against each other but against oneself
No man is to please any other more than his LORD
Every soul’s action should be to impress God
Therefore, compare not yourself to any other
To truly live: let it be against the Word of your Master that you compete …”
‘Assuming the role of the objective observer
In his own life: he understands thus foretells things better.
Than what it felt like experiencing them from inside.
The trials she’s endured and those yet to come,
Like concrete slabs keep building a woman of tower-height.
Strength, usefulness, confidence and competence!
The higher she goes, though, the tougher it gets.
And it appears to be, the blocks of his success
Lie in the deep-rooted foundation of these:
Strength, usefulness, competence and confidence.
If there’s anything that makes up a young man,
Except good genes and a bright t-shirt,
It’s the aforementioned four,
Boxing in God
To keep his ways pure while in pursuit of what he ought to have
Anyway, realizing how viewing objectively gave her
Better judgment, simultaneously less humanness
She dons against her human skin
With better success of how success is reached,
Thus the tower of a true Youth is to be built
Missing from it currently is the block with your name
Around Himself God can build your four walls
And roof-lock Himself in with the spear-shaped shield of faith.
My example, then: David
A youth: with the full foundation
He grew into adulthood: being Godly
Blazing a trail: walked by none before
Although flawed, at his death: a man adorned, adored by God.
