Love Them

“And we find what we’re made of through the open door. Is it fear you’re afraid of? What are you waiting for? Love alone is worth the fight,”

                                                            ~Switchfoot

~Love Them~

We are to be the city.
We are to be the ones that are watched.
The pressure of eyes
The pressure to not mess up.

We are on the hill.
We are the ones on display.
The pressure to not fail you
The pressure to not fail me.

We are to be a letter sent to those in need.
We are to be pen and ink to the world.
To do good works and be a bright light.
To do well in life, by powers given to us as gifts

To be better than those that spit in our faces.
To love them even when they are hurting us.
To be better than the man who hates your life.
To love them with light even if it means death.

That person may wrong you, curse you, abuse you.
That person may defile your name, kill your spirit, and beat your way of life.
Love them.
Love them.

We are to be the city,
We are on the hill,
We are to be a letter sent to those in need,
To be better than those that spit in our faces.

Love them,
Do good, and also do well in all that you do.
Love them,
Pray for the ones who strike you.

The pressure is on us, but we have truth.
The pressure is on us, look up and live.
The pressure is on us, love the hopeless.
The pressure is on us, love the unloving.

To be a bright light known as hope.
To look inside and bring out that love.
To be more than the ones that wrong us and love them anyway.
To be different

To stand up
To be the light
To bring hope and love to those that may not even love me.
The pressure is on, I will love them.
