This verse has always fascinated me, in multiple gospels. How Jesus knew our psyches!
If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
When You empower me to move with grace—
A kindly word, writing a needed check,
Calling 9-1-1- to report a wreck,
Soothing a grieving soul with warm embrace—
The world feels like a transcendental place.
But if I relish in what good I do,
The Master’s words shine in the depths within:
Where does my light end and darkness begin?
Do I elevate me, or acclaim You?
Even when I obey, I wish I knew.
