Who welcomes me

           “Whoever welcomes you welcomes me,
           and whoever welcomes me

           welcomes the one who sent me.
                           —Matthew 10.40

Our souls speak to each other.
         When your heart goes out to another
                  it is your soul seeking God.

God is love; in every act of love
         God is present
                  and our soul leaps up.

When someone receives you with joy
         they are thirsting for the love you bear
                  that is not yours but God’s.

When someone rejects you, forgive them.
         Something unknown in them
                  is afraid of love.

What you do matters. But it’s not about you.
         It’s God people seek and avoid.
                  Be a cup of cold water for the thirsty.
