Not the Desert of Sinai by Raymond A. Foss

God declaring
through the words of the prophet
not the desert of Sinai
sacrifices burned on the altar
instead the truth of our worship
faithful devotion
in the living of our lives
how we walk day to day

Loving our neighbors,
caring for even strangers
reverently walking,
humbly with our God
Letting the creator lead us
the still voice speaking
leading us to mercy
sharing our lives with them

Nothing so much
giving in offering
than the way we carry
ourselves through the day
Love a verb moving
into the world with us
manifest love of God
in how we love one another and
in how we approach his throne
