Lil brother blade of grass
We grow side by side.
But you oh blade stay rooted and rested .
And i oh blade , stray , roam and resist.
How can it be God made us both .
I look at you and I envy your obedience.
You are too busy growing obediently to notice me.
Even when i come and crush you underfoot ,
you bounce up ward to the light of the Son.
The saints were like blades of grass mowed and martyred
and ,when I look to be like you ,I am yet a saint being made.
“My hand made all these things, and so they all came into being. This is the Lord’s declaration. I will look favorably on this kind of person: one who is humble, submissive in spirit, and trembles at My word. You will see, you will rejoice, and you will flourish like grass; then the Lord’s power will be revealed to His servants, but He will show His wrath against His enemies.”
Isaiah 66:2, 14 HCSB
THE RULE OF ST BENEDICT CHAPTER 5
1 The first step of humility is unhesitating obedience, 2 which comes naturally to those who cherish Christ above all.
