Christian-Nestell-Bovee-Example-has-more-followers-than-reasonJoin together in following my example, brothers and sisters, and just as you have us as a model, keep your eyes on those who live as we do.  Philippians 3:17 NIV

You have lots of teachers

But not many Fathers

Not much time to model

Not much time to bother


Someone steps forward in a flash

On a pedestal, they stand so tall

You give them everything but grace

That which is needed, when they fall


You walk in the direction that you see

Your eyes point in the way to go

Look to that which is holy and good

Revealing discernment, may you know


There is a hunger to find someone real

Someone your heart can trust

Authentic captures the thought

Integrity and honesty is a must


Are you that person others should follow

Are you the example that they need

Are you laying stones of a righteous path

Who are you helping to succeed


God will be a father to the fatherless

He will open wide His heart of love

He uses people here, in your path

Making visible what is true above


Paul said, “Follow my example

As I follow Christ too”

May God graft-in loving models

Godly people, just right for you
