Resisting sin

From within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts (Mark 7:21; NLT).

I will watch what I do and not sin in what I say. I will hold my tongue (Psalm 39:1; NLT).


Help me to resist
My sinfulness today –

By dismissing
All judgemental thoughts,

Refusing to utter
Any unkind words,

And curbing every impulse
To act selfishly.

Help me, instead,
To pray for others constantly,

To think more kindly,
Speak more warmly,

And to offer love,
To everyone I meet.
