To spend moments thinking about
Someone else’s need,
Someone else’s desire
For something pretty,
Transcends into a call to action,
A willingness to serve,
To fulfill a longing of this
A process of putting self aside
To make room, to make a home
For servanthood, for a moment,
Perhaps for a lifetime.
Teaching children of this
Provides a way
For a natural space to develop
Where if it did not happen
They may have hearts consumed
Instead of selflessness.
To give, to love, to create
For someone, a stranger, a friend,
A way to be a tangible Jesus,
If only for a few moments.
