could we?

“A leper came to him begging him, and kneeling he said to him, ‘If you choose, you can make me clean.’”  Mark 1:40

we could
feed the hungry,
welcome the outsider,
empty our closets for immigrants,
step in front of bullies,
challenge the oppressors,
speak louder than the haters,
we usually choose
not to get
our hands dirty,
our hearts broken,
our feelings hurt,
our faith challenged
