What God must think when he thinks of you
You--who seem shocked to hear your name called
In such an intimate way
By such an intimate one.
Did you know when you took that unnecessary time yesterday
While checking email, reading feeds, and chatting online
That the extra time was the difference
Between helping a stalled-out motorist or not?
What did you think God's will was?
To promote yourself
Or to be open to God
To help those in need
To reveal God through you?
As for the stalled-out motorist:
He received help from an agnostic
Before you could arrive to follow God's will for you.
(Not that you would have stopped anyway
Even if you had been in the right place at the right time.)
You went to work, lived a safe life, kept to yourself
While the motorist learned from his guardian angel
That everything is chance--
A lucky meeting brought him help
In his time of need.
