Keeping Bad Company???
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By James Pemberton

In Bad Company


Remember bad company
corrupts good morals.
So be careful when "hanging
around the fellows."


What may sound to be
pleasant and fun.
May cause your spiritual
life to become undone.


The truths of God's word
which you now instill.
Are guarding your conscience
and your will.


God loves you and doesn't want
you caught unaware.
For he is somebone who
really does care.


If the company you keep
tends to pull you down.
Allow God's word to plant
your feet on solid ground.


God will give you happiness
this world could never give.
He will be by your side
each day that you live.


May people around you
certainly know,
You're Christ' example--
no matter where you go!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
