Pastor’s Pondering – September 27, 2017

If I were there,

I would offer a glass of water,

I would offer my shoulders to lean on,

I would offer my hands, my feet,

My hours of toil

To ease your suffering.


Even from afar,

I offer my prayers,

I collect supplies,

I write a check.


But how many times have you wept

And I never thought of you?

How often has my neighbor needed something-

A smile, a kind word,

A ride to town-

And I never asked

“Is there something I can do?”


Lord, have mercy on me

For I am a sinner.
