God the word

Mark 12:24
Jesus said to them, “Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God?

When we twist the words 
to suit our own ends
When we manipulate God
to create the kind of deity
who fits our purpose
We deny fullness of life
for ourselves
and for others.
We reduce the possibility
of love and abundance
Of openness and acceptance
Of room for all.
Words spoken in love 
used to divide
Power given to liberate
used to oppress.
And God weeps at the diminishing
of those whom God calls beloved.

God show us the real power of your word in redeeming the world and convince us of the part you have for us to play in living out your word of life.
