A Child Is Known By His Doings

by Margaret Cagle

Children, listen to this bit of advice.
In all your dealings, be kind and nice.
"Even a child is known by his doings," you see,
So try to be as good as you can be.

Nobody approves of a child who is bad,
And it also makes your parents feel sad.
People may call you "imp" or even "brat".
I'm sure your parents won't like that.

Children, behave the best that you can
And grow into a lovable lady or man.
People then will say you are so kind,
And you're the best friend one can find.

Just make your work pure and make it right,
And try to serve God with all your might.
You're known by your doings, Scriptures say,
So be on your best behavior each day.
