How often do we ‘go along’ to keep from causing discord?
How often do we hand our belief over to be trod underfoot?
How often do we satisfy the world instead of our Lord?
Too often…

How often do we ignore the pain of the poor?
How often do we pass by the hands of the hungry?
How often do we miss Jesus knocking at our door?
Too often…

How often do we see the pain of the world?
How often do we respond to the cries for help?
How often do we seek first the will of the Lord?
Not often enough…

Jesus, please forgive us for the pain we cause You when we ignore your commands and go our own way.
