A Little Bit with Righteousness

When ways of people please the Lord their enemies turn to friends.

A little bit with righteousness is better than rich offense.

—–

Our human minds may plan the way, but God will direct our steps.

When leaders can control their words, decisions have good effects.

—–

The standards of what’s right and wrong are based on the way of love.

It’s nothing that we made ourselves, but comes to us from above.

—–

A nation run by righteousness with law at its very heart 

is overthrown when those in charge are evil in any part.
