Crumbs

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         

         “Let the children be fed first,
                  for it is not fair to take the children’s food
                  and throw it to the dogs.”
         “Sir, even the dogs under the table
                  eat the children’s crumbs.”

                           —Mark 7.27-28

Better than perfection
         is repentance.
Better than defeating your opponent
         is evoking compassion in them.
Better than waiting for the banquet that may never come
         is feasting on the crumbs before you.

         •

You are not unlike the Anointed One
         who is no greater than you.
Something of a better world to come cannot be
         until you speak it.
God does not hold all the cards.
         We see together.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
