Plumb line

         I am setting a plumb line in the midst of my people.                  —Amos 7.8

How easy it is to be off balance, to be askew, to not see straight.

How easy it is to let my own leanings distort what I think is upright.

When I build a great tower and see it is off plumb, do I have the courage to destroy and rebuild?

God, help me to discern justice, to see love, to stand straight.

Give me faith to hold a plumb line to this world —  to be a plumb line: to stay true, to bear witness, held in your hand, suspended by your grace.
