Contemplation on Matthew 25:31-46.

 

Poem: Which Me are You?

OR You, Me and God We have a thing

 

You said you were hungry I saw you and I knew. Provide, my heart said, So I gave.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said you were thirsty. I heard you. I know. My heart said give, so I gave.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said you were a stranger. I could tell by a face I had never seen. My heart said, invite him in, so in he came.

You, Me and God have a thing.

You said, You needed clothes. I dared to look but look I did and I could tell. My heart said, Give of your bounty so I did.

You, Me and God have a thing.

News said, you were in prison. I heard, I know. Caring, I visited.

You, Me and God have a thing.

Only God knows my end.

 

You said you were hungry I saw you and I knew it. “So what” my heart said, So I went on.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said you were thirsty. I heard you. I knew it. But my heart said “so what”, so I went on.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said you were a stranger. I could tell by a face I had never seen. My heart said, “don’t invite him in”,  so I closed the door on him.

You, Me and god have nothing.

You said, You needed clothes. I dared to look but look I did and I could tell. My heart said, NO WAY”. So of my bounty I refused.

You, Me and god have nothing.

News said, you were in prison. I heard, I knew. Not Caring, I didn’t visit.

You, Me and god have nothing.

Only God knows my end.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
