Don’t Cheat to Win

Don’t Cheat to Win

Don’t cheat to win
For cheating is sin
To cheat is to lie
An evil ploy to get by
To cheat is to steal
For status that isn’t real
Cheating sullies your name
Brings great men to shame
Cheating damages trust
Intensifies societal distrust
Don’t cheat to win
For it will come up again
If you cheat to succeed
In time, you’ll mourn your misdeed
Your essence will be pained
Payback will exceed all you gained
Don’t cheat to excel
Others may follow your foul trail
If you cheat to get renown
You will bring loved ones down
Don’t cheat to get ahead
Live by integrity instead
For all cheaters will eventually be found out
The Light of judgment will bring our dark deeds out

Bread of deceit is sweet to a man;
but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
Prov 20:17 (KJV)

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God,
and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
For God shall bring every work into judgment,
with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (KJV)


I Owe Jesus
