The love of God

At the centre of the cross
Is a heart full of love
It's the light of the world
Brought from heaven above

Jesus, God made man
Taught about the greatest love
It's the centre of God's plan
Brought down to earth like a dove

If you're lost, feeling low
Remember what's central to it all
Love your neighbour as yourself
That's the centre of God's call


This poem was inspired by the amazing art work by Kim Nelson who has set the Sunday challenge at real toads.  It's well worth visiting to see the art and poetry.  I'm off now to see how much this piece of art would cost to buy.

Hello Emma,
So right, but not always easy to carry out, is it?

Mary said...

"Love your neighbor as yourself" is a worthy goal.

Seemms natural that this sweet three stage poem and this illuminated cross/heart should be together.

Margaret said...

So smooth and soft, this comforting poem. Like a little lullaby.

Lovely poem, words to live by.

Kim Nelson said...

I am thrilled that the painting prompted the depth of feeling you so eloquently share ins your poem. And love is decidedly what it's all about.

Susie Clevenger said...

A wonderful goal...we can never have enough love.

So true... and beautifully expressed.

Yes, "the center of God's plan," beautifully written!
