2015.08.08: the way of words

Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today. Drill them into your children. Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. Bind them at your wrist as a sign and let them be as a pendant on your forehead. – Dt 6:6-8


it’s easy to hear the words
it’s easy to speak the words
it’s easy to write the words
and wear it on our wrists
and around our necks

it’s not so easy
to open our hearts
and experience the words
seeping into our very being

only when we are the words
will the people believe
