THE SERVANT OF THE LORD

The servant of the Lord
Must be gentle to all men
Avoiding foolish questions
The unlearned do ever yen.

The servant of the Lord
Must be apt to teach God's truth;
Being always patient -
But instructing with reproof.

The servant of the Lord
Must walk in meekness all the way;
So that God might grant repentance
To the opposer and gainsay.

The servant of the Lord
Must speak evil of no man
For a good man cannot insult him;
And no other can !

2 Timothy 2:19-26
