Pastor’s Pondering – July 26, 2017

This I Know

This I know,
For I have seen it in myself,
That I am better
When I am loved-
By myself,
By the Lord,
Even imponderably,
By you.
And even though surely
Some folk are easier to love than I,
I believe we are all
Better when we are loved.

Therefore I hope to love
Better each passing day-
My enemy,
My neighbor ,
A stranger or maybe two,
The Lord and you-
And if one trifle
Or one barrel may be wasted,
I pray the Lord
Will cast it back on me.
