Choosing God

“Choosing God”
by Mothers Union

Choosing God,
choosing to let your child be born in poverty
and of doubtful parentage
choosing an occupied country with unstable rulers
choosing the risk of his dying in a dirty stable
after a long journey by a pregnant teenager
choosing to let him grow up poor, and in danger,
and misunderstood by those who loved him.
Choosing God
we doubt the wisdom of your choices then,
and we doubt them now,
while the rich are still full
and it is the poor who get sent away.
Help us, lest we in our anger or ignorance
choose to walk another way.
