The Sin of Ambivalence

Holy God,

The greatest tragedy
is not to hate God,
for the one who hates
has God ever present
before his mind.

It is ambivalence,
thoughtless and uncaring,
a life that is at once
both full and empty,
full of trivialities,
yet empty of meaning

Heal my lukewarm heart, Lord,
and restore me to my first love.

Amen
