fulfilling the law : love

Matthew 5:38–48

when the world slaps us in the face,
in God we turn to face another day

when the world pulls the coat from our back,
in God we offer the whole rack

when the world makes us walk too far,
in God we walk further than they ask

when the world begs for all that we can offer,
in God we give more than we thought we had

when the world has lost its Way,
in God we will remember, and we will stay

when the world shows us its fear,
in God we will show God’s love
