“He chose our heritage for us,” Psalm 47:4a

not stockpiles
of weapons, but
open arms to carry
the most vulnerable;
not multiple accounts
overflowing with money,
but pockets emptied
to feed the hungry,
to heal the broken,
to shelter the rough sleepers;
not power and privilege
to tell others what to do,
but grace and justice
to share with those
too often ignored

our inheritance
is more than enough
