Corruption

The Lord looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if anyone is truly wise, if anyone seeks God. But no, all have turned away; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not a single one (Psalm 14:2-3; NLT).

“Follow me and be my disciple,” Jesus said to him (Matthew 9:9; NLT).

************************************

Lord,

Our corruption
And our hatred
Know no bounds,

So we truly have
The world
That we deserve.

Forgive us;
Heal us;
Rescue us, we pray;

And help us
To follow you,
So we may change.
