Statement of Faith

At times when life’s burdens
Seem too much to bear,
Compare your lot to your neighbor’s
And you may find some solace there.

You may see one who has no food
Or one who has no shoes;
One whose life is worse than yours
And would gladly trade with you.  

Your load will seem much lighter
If this one thing you’ll do…
Consider the needs of others
And take your eyes off you.

Let each of you look out not only for 
his own interests, but also for the 
interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)
