Proverbs 11:3 The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them.

What Guides Your Sail?

Robin Aylor

What  ushers a person throughout their life?
A motor? The fuel?… A spark that ignites?

Something leads them along and shows them the way.
What steers the wheel when there’s a truck in the way?

What says “don’t do your chores”
“Steal from the department store”
“Taunt that wild bore”
“Pull into the next liquor store”

What makes some delight in God, they kneel and pray
They submit to their parents in the Lord and obey
Even when the road is dark in the middle of the day
Their heart is turned a particular way

What guides them is the integrity of the upright
There has only been one who has lived that life
Where Adam and Eve and we all fail

It’s Jesus righteousness in those who believe that guides our sail
