Let love heap




What measure do others use

when deciding how much to give me?

How do they know how much to pour—

to hold love back or let love heap.


Do I let love abundantly spill

or scrape the excess and hoard.

Do I generously give from the till—

or remeasure, lest they get more.


The truth can fully hurt

and an empty lap can weep—

when the measure given away

is exactly, what comes back to me.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measures, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”*
