Invitation

Jesus said ‘Come!’
But I was too busy.
Jesus said ‘Come!’
But I was too sad.
Jesus said ‘Come!’
There was something more pressing.
I didn’t go.
I kept saying ‘No!’

Jesus said ‘Come!’
And others –
unloved, poor, vulnerable, lost,
the forgotten, oppressed –
said ‘Yes!’
Went instead.
And were welcomed
and blessed.
