For Such a Time

How are we loving, my sisters and brothers?
How are we loving one another?

How are we showing the love of Christ,
to our fellow sisters and brothers?

With snide remarks, spilling forth
all ungodly conjectures?
With rolling eyes, outraged cries,
conspiratorial and lengthy lectures?

What are we sharing, my sisters and brothers?
How are we showing our caring?

Have we not been born for this one thing,
for grace and truth, His praises to sing-
for speaking the truth in love, not contemptuously
to be salt and ever-increasing luminosity

Are our words spirit-led bringing life to the dead?
Or do they instead bring dread?

If a brother is born for adversity and a friend always loves,
and Jesus our living example-

I ask you again, my dear friends-
How are you loving your sisters and brothers?
How are we loving each other? Answer this question
if you can, how are you loving your brother?
