Can we learn spiritual lessons from a spider? Or by our on actions toward everyone we meet
| The stranger in my presence|
My morning routine is all set.
I pray, sip my tea and watch TV.
I read The Word for my spiritual food.
What a blessed way to set my mood.
For when I met a stranger today, I can show kindness to lead his way.
Kindness to the stranger is the way best to serve, pass the test.
I happened upon the stranger today, surprisingly he was in my way.
So startled was my soul that I quickly grabbed a napkin from the table,
Then squashed that spider since I was able.
I did not reflect before my action, that my Master would reject, such passion.
For if I should have paused and asked, why you are here in this fashion.
The little spider word have said, my apologies, oh man of God, I asked for your compassion.
Your door was open and I crawled in, I realized my mistake and quickly turned to retrace my actions.
But you shut the door before I acted and now I'm trapped, at your mercy apt.
Now I see the door I entered in my reaction, I too am in need of His merciful act.
