One master

         No slave can serve two masters.
                  —Luke 16.13

God I admit: so often
I am trying to look good.
I'm serving the master of being right.
I'm loyal to the boss of my ego.

But I can walk away from that master.
I am free to serve you,
to belong to your grace alone,
to seek only to receive and give love.

Faithful in small things, to be faithful in great,
I submit to your grace.
Help me each moment to examine my loyalty
and serve only your love, absolutely devoted.


         Your love … alone.
