Mud-Healing

x

Jesus didn’t need

Things

He didn’t need mud

To heal,

To draw in the dirt

To make a point

He didn’t need a drove

Of pigs

(poor pigs)

He didn’t need a feast

He didn’t need

The perfumed oil,

Though he adored

The one who gave it

I am sure

x

He didn’t need Martha’s

Food

He didn’t need Mary

At his feet to learn

Though I imagine

He was happy for

Her devotion

x

Jesus didn’t need

The Earth

Though he came

To save it

And to give

Too much

x

This was

And is

A God of love

x

When we love,

So many things

Don’t matter,

Anymore

And what does

We’re willing

If not ready

To give up the world for

x

Sacrifice

For service

For devotion

Life for another life,

To dive or run into

Dangerous waters

For rescue
