"Not even a few copper coins in your purse..."
Your security, Jesus, is from within,
from who you are,
and who your Father is,
and how your Father relates to you.
You are free.
You told your apostles, and you tell us
if we are willing to have nothing but you
and rely on no material thing,
somehow all creation will be ours,
even the infinite wealth of God.
But is this practical?
Is it sensible?
Is it prudent?
On occasion, perhaps,
but to live like that?
"Not by bread alone do you live..."
"I am the bread of life."
"Consider the lilies of the field
and the birds of the air."
"The Father himself loves you."
I will feed you with food you do not know.
I will continue to prepare breakfast for you
as on that first Resurrection morn,
"Where I am, you will be.
