Delight in the Ability to Help
“I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Rather than feel sorry for myself,
agonising over my inadequacies, coveting the gifts I lack,
let me delight in my ability to help where I can.
Rather than reserving my efforts
for where they will be recognised, appreciated, reciprocated,
may I prioritise those who will allow me to serve them
without any such distractions.
Losing myself in you, gaining the world as friend and sister…
