A Tale of Two Kingdoms

This is a benediction I shared at Ecclesia Clear Lake this past Sunday, enjoy!

Where two kingdoms stand war is at hand.

Whereas one makes a killing breaking dreams and hearts,
the other forgives all debts and gives freely new starts.

The will of the one is to progress only its purpose;
the will of the other is to lead humbly as a servant.

An economy of grace and pursuit of the poor
stand strictly at odds with closed fists and shut doors.

Let Him cast off your fetters in the kingdom of "me" 
to come serve freely in the Kingdom of "He."
