What Would Jesus Do?

Would He live in isolation
Ignoring human need,
Or give what is no sacrifice
Some hungry mouth to feed...

A little out of plenty
While He lives on in ease,
Or personally become involved
To free men from disease?

Would He just send a gift or two
And no commitment make,
Or would compassion fill His heart
And other things forsake?

It isn't always easy
To hear the Master's voice,
But once His heart's revealed to us
There is no further choice.

We're called to follow in His steps,
To bear our cross and go,
Whatever is God's task for us
If we but ask, we'll know.

We do not want to see the needs
But help is overdue,
Yet, after all, we're only one...
Is that what He would do?

Wonderful! You have such nice form and rhythm. This reminds me of the story of the poor women who came into church and put small coins the offering jar. Then Jesus said she had given more than anyone. Thanks for the reminder to live wholeheartedly.
