Parables (Lent 28)

Five for two,
sparrows for pennies.

One for ninety-nine,
lost lamb for the entire flock.

Lifetime security for a daily gift,
a barn full of grains for a breath of life.

Ultimately: worry for faith,
a wardrobe¬†for a lily’s glory.

Merciful God,
save me from myself —
from spending foolishly for
what cannot be bought;
for failing to trust in
your faithfulness.

on Luke 12
