Lesson From a Friend

I told him that I needed to pay
Something back to make even
Our debts
But he said no
Because there is this gift we have received
And we must practice what it means
To receive because
Perhaps more than it keeps us from giving
Our pride has this way
Of closing our hands
To the grace of God in our neighbor
