Great Power

My words can heal

And they can wound.

My eyes radiate love,

Indifference,

Hatred.

My hands reach out to help

And sometimes, to harm.

My feet carry me

To places of light,

But too often, to those of darkness.

My life speaks

Of caring, commitment, sincerity,

Yet, at others, of selfishness and lack of concern.

I fly

As an example to others

Or oblivious to them.

I help the hurting

And comfort the lonely.

But too often,

I leave them to fend for themselves.

Or worst of all, I hold them back

And I keep them down.

The One who gave me life

Gave me great power.

May I use it wisely.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NIV).
