Love

Prompt from Sunday Scribblings: write about love

He had the riches
of the entire universe,
the comforts of a body
untouched by pain,
the merits of a life
lived without sin,

and He gave it all up
for a world filled with
poverty and suffering,
paid the price of our
sinful imperfection
with His own life,

and we reject Him,
ignore His sacrifice,
despise His love.

  1. sad,
    rejection despite his sacrifice.
    thanks for highlighting another kind of love.
