Lazaroo – Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Jul 06, 2011 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with openhearted wonder:

“Now implore God to be gracious to us.”
(Malachi 1:9)

I’ve got a question, Jesus –

and it’s not because I don’t intend to obey this verse.

I’ve decided to obey Your every command
no matter what.

When by this example I’m told to implore You – beg You! – to be gracious to me

then that’s what I’ll do.

(I do that anyway, don’t I? Without being told!)

But here’s one of the things I love most about You:

You don’t tell me to obey You, no questions asked.
While I’m obeying You –

I get to ask all the questions I want!

So here’s my question:

You already are gracious!

Why wouldn’t You keep right on being that way
whether I beg You or not?

It’s because You’re also many other things, isn’t it?

And if I don’t quickly get my act together

I’m liable to find out what they are.
