“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me,
and whoever welcomes me
welcomes the one who sent me.
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.
