Prayer

Why?

Love your neighbour as yourself (Matthew 19:19; NLT).

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged” (Matthew 7:1-2; NLT).

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all” (Mark 9:35; NIV).


Lord,
Why do we claim
To relish conversation,
When in truth
We want to speak,
And not to listen?

Why do we claim
To value friendship,
When in truth
We want to take,
And not to give?

And why do we claim
To care for others,
When in truth
We want to judge,
And not to serve?
