Matthew 6:25-34

with a refrigerator
overflowing with food,
i don't need to worry
about food or drink,

but i do worry
about those whose
whose next meal
might come from
the garbage i throw out,
whose water is polluted?

my closet runneth over
with garments,
so i can pick and choose
what to wear each day,

but what about those
whose clothes
would be considered rags
in most households?

you tell me not to worry -
which is good advice,
Loving God,
but i have a hunch
you want me to do something
for those who don't have
all with which I am blessed.
