Great Expectations

Do you expect your fellow Christians
To be always sweet and kind
To daily feed upon God's Word,
Always have peace of mind?

Do you take for granted they'll stand by you
When troubles round you rise,
And if there be an altercation
They'll be the first to apologise?

To you expect them to witness boldly
In the Holy Spirit's power,
Never let their selfish interests
Crowd out the quiet hour?

These are great expectations
Noble and good and true;
Consider now, how you fulfil
What God expects from you.
