A Scandalous Love

Thursday, May 26, 2016

 

What makes me think

That my love  . . .

 My try harder,

 Up and down,

 Sometimes on,

 And sometimes not,

Love is enough to change the world?

On some days it doesn’t even change the vibe in my own home.

 

 

God tells me His love in me changes everything.

 

I remember the story of the sorcerer who followed Philip (Acts 8:9-24)

A trickster hungry for new miracles, he tried to buy them.

But God’s love can’t be bought

            Not with money,

            Mission work,

            Or martyrdom.

 

God gives His love away

            So outrageously generous,

            So politically incorrect,

             So recklessly selfless;

It seems a scandalous act

To give us more love

Than we could give back.

 

But no,

I am the one who loves with scandalous reserve.

I am the one who measures

                        And calculates

                        And hoards.

 

When I realize that nothing I keep for myself

Will ever compare to the

            Unfailing,

            Unending,

            Unselfish,

            Unmeasured

Love from the One Who always has more to give;

Then, I am ready to be emptied

To be filled.
