The Word of God is the "Measuring Rod" (Poem)

Updated on September 18, 2013
The Word of God is our ruler
The Word of God is our ruler

The Word of God

Is the measuring rod,

It is the ruler of our hearts, and souls

Assessing and evaluating our lives

Preparing us for our destiny

We should really always endeavor

To compare our lives to it, and

Not to the lives others,

Comparisons lead to competitions

With sisters and with brothers,

The Word of God provides the balance we need
The Word of God provides the balance we need

We are distinct from each other

Having gifts which differ, and

Some that are the same,

Comparing our lives only

To the Word of God,

Leads us, and brings about

The necessary change,

These are precepts and principles,

Parables and insights

We need to adhere to,

Which can help us and to navigate

All the way through,

The rod of correction which leads us to perfection
The rod of correction which leads us to perfection
The Word of God is the measuring rod
The Word of God is the measuring rod

We have counselors, advisors, and

Sound doctrine of the holy kind,

There are admonitions, warnings, and

Exhortations, to gauge our way,

There is correction, and instruction

Written for all of us,

Comparing ourselves to others

Is simply and unnecessarily unjust,

It will not pave the path

To our ultimate completion,

Conforming into the image

Of Jesus Christ will,

Keep your eyes on Jesus, and

Follow Him!

Compare your life only to

The Word of God, because

It is our measuring rod.
