Hearts full of deceit
that fall short of the glory of God.
Churches expend energy
declaring the worthlessness of the people in the pews.
Concerned that darkness may go unnoticed,
constant reminders that we are unlovable are given
so none forget.
Forgetting is hard.
In angry words…
In harsh thoughts…
In ignored injustices…
No, we don’t forget.
But we have forgotten
that we are a masterpiece.
A work of art
crafted by the Giver of good gifts.
We are divine poetry,
fearfully and wonderfully made.
