day 47

The people all answered as one: "Everything that the LORD has spoken we will do."  Exodus 19:8a

of course,
      we will do
everything*
   you ask of us!

*except for
   welcoming the outsider,
   lifting up the fallen,
   caring for the most vulnerable,
   loving our enemies,
   forgiving over and over,
   sharing from our abundance,
and other ridiculous ideas
we know you haven't
really thought through.
