Then Good Friday and more ugliness. However, the ugliness does not win. The victory belongs to the resurrected Jesus! Death dies and Life lives--which means true life, abundant life, is offered for us all. And THAT is beautiful!
Palm Sunday Parable (Luke 19)Nobility arrives at a distant
Country to claim his kingship. His subjects,
The ones he loves, hate him—reject his gift,
His benevolence, seeking false freedom,
Blinded by fear. And the king takes and gives.
Nobility arrives on unbroken
Colt to offer His Kingdom. Commoners,
The ones He loves, offer cloaks, branches—yet
Leaders reject Him, choosing fundalit
Laws, age-old shackles. And the King He weeps.
Empty tomb. Kairos
Death died. The double
negative makes positive.
Life lives—Victory is one.
