Verse from Matthew Works


JESUS WAS HOMELESS
by Matthew Works
(c.)1999, matthewworks@yahoo.com or visit Matthew's webpage at www.openchurches.org

Jesus was homeless,
and so were Peter and Paul.
How can the churches, then, lock their doors
on the least among us all ?

What you do to the least of His brothers-and-sisters
you do to the Son of God;
and, should one of these least ones freeze to death,
it's because your heart has grown hard.

If Store 24 can be open
for twenty-four hours a day,
then how can the Body of Christ on Earth
turn any body away ?

In truth, there are no excuses
for the poor to be treated this way.
If only the churches would open their doors
homelessness could be ended today.

God wants us to respond with compassion
to the plight of the homeless and poor.
So, come on, all you bishops, and all of you priests,
first your hearts, and, then, open those doors !
