“Now, concerning love…”

You know what it takes, 

says Paul,

inimitable.

Love as you are able.

Love in all loveliness

your sisters and brothers,

faithful to the love

that created and called you.

Thus may our delight

depend on none but God;

who finds,

in Christ’s disciples,

faithful fugitives from fearful folly –

folly that places too much weight

on the passing things that substance wants:

grief and pain;

death and doubt.

All these will fade and vanish.

Our Victor spoils us with hope

that finds form in fantastic

future visions.

Real or imagined,

the joy that these foretell

has no substitute.

Second to none,

this longed for second coming

that finds us loving our living –

living in love.

JR. Lackie – Feb 2012
