Less and more

Put on your new nature, and be renewed
as you learn to know your Creator and become like him
(Colossians 3:10; NLT).

1. Lord,
May I grow more like you,
By talking less,
And listening more.

2. Lord,
May I grow more like you,
By wanting less,
And serving more.

3. Lord,
May I grow more like you,
By taking less,
And giving more.

4. Lord,
May I grow more like you,
By judging less,
And loving more.

Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes
(Ephesians 4:23; NLT).
