When Truth Comes

(Part of my E100 series of poems)

Acts 6:8-8:8
they began yelling so they
wouldn’t have to hear

When  truth comes,
What do we do?
Do we cry forgiveness?
Do our hearts repent?
Or do we turn
Away from You?

When truth comes,
What do we hear?
That which draws us closer?
That which breaks our heart?
Or do we listen to
the worlds cheers?

When truth comes,
What do we see?
Justice as our worship?
Mercy as our praise?
Or do we seek
What meets our needs?

When truth comes,
Where will we go?
Will we journey with You?
Will we walk the path You’ve shown?
Or will we safely rest
Within our homes?
