"Sermon" Meditation XV: Treasure

"Sell your possessions and give to charity (alms).  Store up treasure for yourselves in a heavenly account, where moths and rust do not consume, and where thieves cannot break in and steal.

For where your treasure is, there your heart  will also be." -- Q1

Where is my treasure?
My heart is divided!
If i don't know what i want
my heart will be broken.

I value security too much and love too little
I treasure self too much and neighbor too little
Much of my treasure is dust or will become dust.
My heart should not follow dust.
What lasts and is good?
Only what i give away is truly mine,

Higher power, show my heart its treasure.  Amen.

"Sermon" Meditation XVI: Kingdom of God

He said, "What is the kingdom of God like? To what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard which a man took and sowed in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches."

He also said, "The kingdom of God is like yeast which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour until it leavened the whole mass."--Q1

If the kingdom of God is within me
it must be smaller than a mustard seed
Well, now, that;s a thought

I am the flour that the leaven will raise
perhaps that leaven is within me too.

I can do less than i do that is contrary to the kingdom
and then i can do even less and with even less
until i have done less than i can even imagine,
and done it with nothing but the grace of god.
