Lent, Day 40: Teaching.

Today’s reading: Mark 11:12-26


And he taught them… and the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching. (vv. 17a, 18b)


little did we know
when he came
hungry to the fruitless fig tree
he’d be teaching us
a lesson about
the power of his words
little did we know
when he came
furious to the once-holy temple
upending the thieves’ tables
he’d be teaching us
a lesson about
the house of prayer
little did we know
when he came
boldly to the mountainous city
with a heartful of faith
(leading us
with a word, a prayer, a touch,
pointing us in the direction of
a hill we’d all have to face)
he’d be teaching us
a lesson about
love
