In Church with Mitt on My Mind

Throughout this morning's church service, I kept thinking about Mitt.

Yes, that Mitt.

For instance, when we read, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ,"  I thought about Mitt. (Galations 6:2)

When this morning's preacher recounted the story of the Good Samaritan, she reminded us that Jesus -- in first responding to the cynical lawyer -- told him: "Love your neighbor as yourself." 

To illustrate his point, Jesus offered the parable of the Samaritan. He ended the story by telling the man, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10: 25-37)


When the congregation sang one of my mother's favorite hymns, these words made me think of Mitt:

Let none hear you idly saying,
"There is nothing I can do,"
While the souls of men are dying,
And the Master calls for you."
