Jesus; a rare investor

people

Man seeks what promises to benefit him

See an abandoned piece of land;

And think of how we can acquire it

Notice a classic vehicle; wish it was all yours

It’s always about what works for you

*****

Material prosperity is the altar of worship

While pride and selfishness are synonymous gods

*****

Unlike us Christ finds a people abandoned and sees an opportunity

Not to gain power or glory; but invest His love

He sees a people broken and abandoned

And turns not to leave but opens His hands wide

He encounters a people dying with the guilty of sin;

Meets a nation blasphemous before His Father

And chooses to lay down His life for them

*****

An investor will seek power, wealth or personal pride

Jesus only seeks a heart to bestow His love upon

Indeed, He is a rare investor!
