day 166

But the king said to Araunah, "No, but I will by them from you for a price; I will not offer burnt offerings to the LORD my God that cost me nothing."  2 Samuel 24:24

may
   our compassion
   cost us our
         apathy;
   our love
   cost us our
         hate;
   our hope
   cost us our
         bitterness . . .
may every gift
we can offer
   cost us our
         desire to hoard.
