Through the filter

May I always view the world
through this one filter: Jesus.
The people You made, loved
and gave Your all for
through this one filter: Jesus.
The street dogs, the exotic birds
and the monkey now screeching
in the treetops opposite my balcony
through this one filter: Jesus.
Made for Him, to be redeemed
and restored in Him, to thrive and burgeon
under His pre-eminent Kingship.
May I see no one through my eyes of flesh,
but every wounded soul I meet,
every angry, self-entitled abuser,
through this one filter: Jesus.
Every loving heart reaching out to the hurting,
every hand held out in kindness,
no matter the creed or heritage,
through this one filter: Jesus.
Every heart created to be His throne,
every longing designed to be quenched in Him.
May I always read Your word
through this one filter: Jesus.
Every requirement of the law,
every ancient scowling prophet,
through this one filter: Jesus.
Every epistle to Your church,
every revelation of Your return,
through this one filter: Jesus.
Through the rainbow prism of Him
who is the Father’s love embodied;
through this one filter: Jesus.
