Have you ever been asked to rise above; what does it mean?
Asked to step outside of the mold, when the other paints red, you paint geeen.
Ever had to be the bigger person?
For if not, the outcome would only worsen.
When they go left, you go right…for righteousness sake.
And when they start to argue, you do not partake.
You did the right thing and did not stumble.
Have you ever been here and been able to stay humble…?
So many chances to rise above, crime, gossip, shame and yes, good ole’ anger.
But the only Way we have the ability comes from the One born in a manger.
He came so that we could survive ANY attack
the remedy found in every stripe on His back…
He bore for us all on that predestined day
When He rose above and didn’t respond to what the crowd had to say.
He showed us clearly how to be humble and rise above
when he asked on his enemy’s behalf, for the Father’s love.
