Be careful and take heed brothers,
That you never create evil;
Rather render aid to others,
In ways to deter the devil.
Unbelieving hearts turn away,
Falling out from the living God;
Allowing them to go astray,
That causes them to become flawed.
Encourage others through each day,
While able to have a chance;
For learning to trust and obey,
To become spiritually advance.
No one ever will be deceived,
By the sin or become stubborn;
Because of faith you have believed,
Another life past this sojourn.
We will remain partners in Christ,
If we continue to hold on;
To trust not becoming enticed,
With desires of a new dawn.
If you hear the Lord speak today,
Do not be stubborn or a fool;
If you rebel then you will stray,
Making you stubborn as a mule.
Who heard the Lord and then rebelled,
All of those whom Moses led out;
The land of Egypt where they dwelled,
Caused God to anger from their doubt.
He was angry with those who sinned,
And in the desert they had died;
Were not spiritually disciplined,
Because they cheated and had lied.
Who did God swear would not enter?
Never enter His place of rest;
Disobeyed not a repenter,
Because they have not done their best.
So they could not enter His place,
Because they still did not believe;
And so God did not shed His grace,
Salvation they could not receive.
