If immigrants and refugees
and poor are not “the least of these,”
then who are we to feed and care
for, clothe and see to their welfare?
If we don’t honor God’s own plea,
how well with our souls will it be?
With wealthy people getting more
and ethics walking out the door
how do we remain Spirit-filled
to focus on what He instilled?
We must, to turn from traitor’s lies
and recognize his mean disguise.
With righteous ears we need to hear
the words of Jesus true and clear.
For if we don’t, we all forsake
His love and grace that’s now at stake.
This gift of freedom must be passed
along to all who are outcast.
If we do not our brothers keep
then we are not our Shepherd’s sheep.
For He’s the same, both then and now,
declaring how we disavow
Him or are seen as followers
when love and mercy both are stirred.
So how we do identify?
Our actions and our words belie;
deceiving Christ is not achieved
by church attendance once a week.
Commit to keep His Word alive
by living Matthew twenty-five.
