" Did... ? "

As evening draws to a close
And we look upon our day,
Would God be pleased do you suppose?
Had we followed His Son's Way?

Did we ignore the passing stranger?
Did we quickly look the other way ~
Thinking we'd be in danger?
Did we utter an unkind word today?

Did an opportunity pass us by
Because of our hesitation to act?
Did we pass Jesus in that person...sigh;
Compassion is the virtue we lacked.

Let us be mindful of what we learn
As we examine our actions this day.
Let's pray for the ability to discern
And follow The Truth,
The Life and
The Way.
