Humility

Another exercise in Humility

 

 

 

There is nothing we can do to make God love us more,

 

There is nothing we can do to make God love us less,

 

it is a strange kingdom, indeed, where there is nothing to earn.

 

Jesus was more interested

in how we love our neighbor

than how we get into heaven.

 

Heaven will take care of itself (and us, too.)

 

By mercy we’re all winners of the race;

so, Until our human love can keep apace

with God’s, may labor be a sharing of the gift

that shines like sun the same on every face.

At end of day, we praise: it’s all of grace.

“Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Matthew 20:15-16
