This third installment of the Trilogy of Mercy is The Saga of the Least of These. It was inspired by an encounter with a former classmate. It teaches us to be mindful of the personality of Jesus and His intent for His followers to model love and compassion for everyone.
The Saga of the Least of These
He came in contact with the least of these;
Strategically positioned beneath his gaze.
They walked the streets and loitered under trees;
Fought for survival on difficult days.
Rather than seeking to understand,
He figuratively gave the back of his hand.
Invisible to some, but to his glance;
The poor decisions they made in their lives,
Were not deserving of a second chance.
But they were not angry for life deprives
On one hand and gives with the other;
At times a way forward is discovered.
