Children’s Actions Show Us Clearly

Children’s actions show us clearly what they have been following. 

Happy pure and righteous living, witness to integrity.  

—–

Who can say “my heart is clean and I am pure from any sin”?

Ev’ry fool is quick to quarrel, gossip secrets, die within. 

—–

Many swear that they are loyal. Few can find someone to trust.

Eyes that see and ears that listen, these are gifts to make us just.

—–

Stay away from strife and anger; make no promise you can’t keep.

Leave revenge to your creator. Don’t neglect your work for sleep.
