“Let love be without hypocrisy.”
The words weigh,
Like a wave on sand
Heavy on my soul,
Pushing and pulling, sifting and moving.
Surely, not I?
Surely, my words and my heart align?
Each wave momentarily reveals
Weakness, inconsistencies, reservations
“Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good.”
Love, without hypocrisy, living
And moving and breathing,
Christ in me, the hope of glory,
Unafraid to draw near despite deep sins and weaknesses I may never see–
This Love like waves
Sweeps away evil
And makes me cling to good.
(Inspired by Romans 12)
