Poem: Heart of Compassion?


Do you regularly wear an invisible,
‘do not disturb’ sign around your neck?
Are you on a real mission for The Kingdom
or on the adventure of a personal trek?

Can you be moved to help without limitations?
Are you consistently viewed as unapproachable?
Does your mind reflect an attitude of a servant?
Remember that genuine Love is always actionable.

Forget about the wickedness of the World,
for we are still the hands and feet of Christ.
The day of reckoning will eventually come.
Are you really living a spirit-filled life?

When divinely recreated by Him within your soul,
God imbued in you an inherent desire to do good.
Are you involved with community or just hiding…
behind the false claim of being misunderstood?

Are you being led by the Holy Ghost’s power
or leaning on the strength of human frailty?
Can you identify your underlying motivation?
Do you have an authentic grasp of reality?

Won’t you share your needed talents with others?
Can you name Him as a source of your inspiration?
What is the prevailing condition of your humanity?
Have you opened or closed your… heart of compassion?





Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
1 John 3: 17-18; Eph 2: 10,5: 2; 1 Cor 13: 1-8;
Luke 10: 25-37

And pays us but with earth and dust;
