God chose to become human
To take on everything being human entailed.
God did not take on just the good things of being human:
Smelling fresh baked bread
Hearing birds sing
Putting feet in a flowing river
Holding a beloved’s hand
And a host of many other joys and wonders.
God also chose to take on those things that challenge us human beings:
Pain of breaking a bone
Suffering the loss of a special person
Living with a globe encompassing virus
Being a victim of
someone’s sense of entitlement
Being hated just because…
It would have been so easy to be human…
Up to a point
But God did not do it that way.
God was and is all in.
That’s what love does
Go all the way
No matter what.
