Pastor’s Pondering – December 19, 2018

How quickly I forget

The woman in the parking lot

Who begged of me some mercy

She really didn’t need,

Then drove off without a wave.

 

Not really,

I still remember

Because I was provoked.

And now she NEEDS my mercy,

My forgiveness-

Or is it I who needs the mercy

My forgiveness will precipitate?

 

How much is back there

We have forgiven, really,

And how much is here at hand

Showering us with joy

Because we once forgave?

And how much lies ahead,

Because God has forgiven all?
