RESPONSIBILITIES

Like Jonah, Lord,
sometimes we try to avoid
the responsibilities you give us:
care for our neighbor,
care for our planet,
paying our bills, housework,
or grocery shopping.
Lord, forgive us
for being recalcitrant.
Open our eyes to your loving care
even when we are out of sorts.

Jonah 4:11
(The Lord said)  “And should I not be concerned about Nineveh, that great city, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons who do not know their right hand from their left and also many animals?”
