When God Is the Enemy

When God strikes you on the right cheek, turn your left to God also. Then God will kiss it. The divine blow is an invitation to equality.

When God takes your cloak, give God your coat as well. Then, God can join you as you dance naked in the streets. The divine theft is an invitation to joy.

When God forces you to carry the burdens of God for one mile, go a second mile. Then watch as God begs you to stop. The divine conscription is an invitation to strip God of power.

Give to God whenever God begs of you, for God is the poorest among us all.
