Sunday Meditations

God says:
    My love
        bids you to work.
Whoever
    wishes to follow God in honest works
        must never
        stand still
    but must always
            travel on.

When are we like God?
I will tell you.
    In so far as we love compassion
    and practice it steadfastly,
    to that extent
    do we resemble the heavenly Creator
    who practices these things
    ceaselessly in us.

How should one live?
    Live
        welcoming
            to all.

–Mechtild of Magdeburg (1210-1280)
