2015.02.05: end of the journey

He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick—no food, no sack, no money in their belts.Mk 6:8

Moses was sent to Egypt with a staff
the Disciples were sent with walking sticks

we begin this journey with not a thing
we will end this journey with not a thing

when we are at the gates of the city of God
what treasure can we offer for admittance

will the Mediator help us off our knees
will He turn his back as we have done to others

will the first time we lean on the walking stick
be the only time we have to stand on our own

we begin this journey with nothing
will we end this journey with nothing
