Plain Speech

God loves especially the poor,
for he is eager to give them everything.
God loves especially the hungry,
for she is eager to feed them.
God loves especially those who cry,
for ze is eager to wipe away their tears.
God loves especially those who people call evil,
those who are hated and cast out from company,
those who are reviled,
for ___ is eager to bring everyone home.

If God is God, then God is a trying
to put everything right,
an eternal passion towards righteousness.

So it is with G-d – and what about you?
The world asks what you deserve – and you always come up short.
But I ask: which way are you headed?
