Mercy #6 (Luke 8:9-14)

burns huge mountains of
like a jet burns fuel
on take-off…

You told us
to withhold revenge
to deal in kindness
to bend our own backs
so that others might be served…

THEN You showed us
how to do mercy
by the life You led…
by the blood You shed…
in the anger You showed.

always You depended on
Your Abba’s protection
when He withheld it.

what is it that You
know that we don't,
