Greater Good

Disciplined imagination

reflects God’s reflection.

When I was a child,

reward and punishment

was activity’s pivot.

When caught breaking the rules,

absolution was sought through

atonement and reparation.

As a reflecting adult,

compassion and sacrifice

mirrors Divine mercy.

The Beatitudes rule,

communion is achieved through

submission and grace.

Common good relies on justice

and seeks to maintain order –

regardless of helpfulness.

Greater good promotes harmony

and restores relations –

envisioning accord.

Creative responsibility

reveals God’s revelation.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
