Owed and owing nothing

           Owe no one anything, except to love one another.
                           â€”Romans 13.8

And consider yourself owed nothing.

In the culvert of consequences,
there are no surprises.
In the machinery of commerce
everyone is indentured.

But the meadow of grace is alive
always and only in the present moment.
New creation. No mortgage.
Owed and owing nothing.

Renounce your claims

and everything is a gift.

This is the scandal of grace.
Nobody owes anybody anything.
It’s all gift.

Your hard earned cash
or the next breath, all of it.

In the fresh present
there is only freedom and miracle,
wonder and gratitude,
receiving and giving with joy.
