Inasmuch

Inasmuch as you minister to others,
to my sisters and my brothers,
to the ones who are in need,
inasmuch as you bring them to your table
to share what you are able,
to comfort and to feed.

When you open yourself to those in need,
inasmuch as your minister to these,
you minister to Me.
You minister to Me.

Inasmuch as you welcome in a stranger
and shelter her from danger
when danger's all around,
inasmuch as you offer safe places
to give them an oasis
where security is found,

when you open yourself to those in need,
inasmuch as you minister to these,
you minister to Me,
when you minister to Me.

Inasmuch as you help someone who's homeless,
who struggles in aloneness
and never has enough,
inasmuch as you comfort one who's hurting,
whose future is uncertain,
who needs a touch of love,

when you open yourself to those in need,
inasmuch as you minister to these,
you minister to Me.
You minister to Me.

Inasmuch as you offer your hand of compassion
to the very least of these.
You minister to Me.
