God's Farm



Sisters!
Brothers!
I can't speak
To you spiritually,
Because you are
Too worldly -
Like babies.

Here's your baba,
You're not ready
For solid food -
Still.

Still puppies
Squabbling over a teat,
Shoving for position -
Your plump bellies
Always starving.

Some of you say:
"I go to this mega-church!"
Some of you say:
"I follow that televangelist!"
Aren't you being worldly?
Who are those preachers?
Who are these pastors?
Servants!
Servants who helped you believe;
But only God brought BELIEF.

Some of us plant seeds,
Others nurture seedlings,
Others feed and tend them;
But only God brings growth!
The tillers,
The sowers,
Share a purpose
(Work together)
Towards a harvest.

Servants yoked:
You their field;
You their barn.


(a reading of 1 Corinthians 3:1-9 and photography by Tiwago)
