Wednesday Riff: Like God

The snake told Adam and Eve
In that garden of consequence
‘You will be like God…
If you give in…’
But God told Moses
In that desert of freedom
‘You will be like God…
If you do what I ask…’

Will we be like God
If we seek to manipulate
Control and self-serve
Building Babel towers to
Establish our little kingdoms?
Will we be like God
If we seek to listen, obey
Serve and set others free?

Will we be like God
If we demand our choices
Reaching for forbidden fruit
Doing what’s right in our own eyes?
Will we be like God
If we try to act justly,
Love compassionately
And walk humbly with the one
Who knows and understands?

If you've appreciated this, why not...
