[Written for the Sentinel]

Obeying and Giving

When first he saw made manifestThat by obedience man is blest,Yussuf Ben Orem also sawOne more requirement in God's law:Obedience lights the altar fires,Yet sacrifice the law requires.Giving is sacrifice, and theyMust also give who would obey.

In Truth, by giving we obey,For when aspiring day by dayThat through our lives the light divine,Life, Truth, and Love, may freely shine,'Tis then completely we fulfilIn grateful love the Father's will,And know that only thus we liveWhen we obey and when we give.

We'd love to hear from you!
