more rocks – v4

we see service
we don’t look at the pile
not wanting to say no
to lifting up our neighbors
for helping them out
we add more rocks
to the load we carry

saying yes too quickly
not discerning the tasks
which are a calling of God
saying yes without question
more rocks for the journey
as if more rocks will earn us
a place in heaven
