“Did you not agree with me for the usual daily wage?” – Matthew 20:13

Creator of wealth and wages,
sustaining living,
feeding multitudes,
giving everything,
withholding nothing;
make us see enough for all
as the only way for each
of us to have enough;
for we say,
Give us this day 
our daily bread,
grumbling,
while hoarders hoard,
spenders spend,
treasures trove,
and demand grows.
Amen.

Not a needy person among them – Acts 4:34

God who wanted to know God,
crying out into the Void, 
"IAM,"
needing company,
how can you need
and we, your creation, not need?
Our daily bread is just that,
daily bread.
A dollar can only be stretched so far
before being ripped apart.
The need of the brutes
makes so many even more needy.
Dare we ask for more, God?
God, can you give more?
For need, 
our need,
is part of the fabric of
your way.
Amen.
