Grace and Mercy on the Table

Grace and mercy, they’re a common staple,
found often on the Christian’s table.

Definitions abound in theological text.
Fed to us weekly in our worship mix.

Yet the taste of these delicacies
seem hidden from our pallet.

But guilt and duty, these we savor,
a steady diet to be consumed.

It’s easy to blame those who’re serving.
It’s they who make us feel undeserving.

But who changed the menu thus?
Was it really them? Or was it us?

In the end it rests with me,
that the Lord is good, to taste and see.

If this we should now discover,
perhaps we’ll then apply – to one another
