A ‘sacrifice’ and an altar


If Jesus walked this well worn path…

If Jesus was right here…

If Jesus knew our hearts and minds…

Would he be cheering us on?

As we throw compassion onto an altar.

An altar of self preservation?

An altar of fear?

Would he cheer us on?

Or would he weep?

And sit once more on the side of a hill,

Crying out a message

Blessed are these…the poor in spirit

Blessed are these…those who mourn

Blessed are these…the meek

Blessed are these… the hungry for righteousness

Blessed are these…the merciful

Blessed are these…the pure in heart

Blessed are these…the peacemakers

And blessed are these…the persecuted.
