A new year. The chance for a fresh start.

Christ tells us
"This is my commandment
that ye love
one another"
But we do not listen.

This is not His doctrine
to cause contention
to let anger fester
to choose to hold grudges
to build walls.

Christ longs
to draw us ever closer
to Him,
to each other
but there are walls in the way.

He cannot force us
the choice is ours
to continue to build our personal walls
or to focus our efforts
on building His city
the New Jerusalem.
