word crumbs

“But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return . . . Be merciful . . .”  Luke 6: 35a, 36a

we spend so much time
talking the walk, yet
keep our wallets hidden away,
offering a rigid back to others,
hurling invective at those we can’t stand,
choosing to do wrong every chance we get,
and so miss the word crumbs
you have left on the path
which would lead us to grace
