A Psalm of Dignity

A Psalm of Dignity — by Joseph Bayly

Thank You Lord Christ
for treating every person
as an end
not a means
including me.

Thank You that You never
climbed on others’ shoulders
never used a man or woman
boy or girl
as if they were a thing.

Thank You for refusing to invade
the freedom You have given us.
Thank you for refusing to
manipulate us, pressure us
maneuver us into a corner.

Thank you
for treating us
as if
we shared
Your image.

Coffee/tea ThoughtCoffee/tea thought:. Take a moment to ponder some way God may have touched you through these sensitive and deep words of Joseph Bayly.

John
