Lewis: Love is nails

Thursday, April 1, 2021
    Maundy Thursday
    Commemoration of Frederick Denison Maurice, Priest, teacher, 1872
    When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left.
    —Luke 23:33 (NIV)
Love’s as hard as nails,
    Love is nails:
Blunt, thick, hammered through
The medial nerves of One
Who, having made us, knew
The thing he had done,
Seeing (with all that is)
Our cross, and his.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Poems, ed., Walter Hooper, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002, p. 124 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 10:37-38; Luke 23:33; 1 Cor. 1:18; Phil. 2:8; Heb. 12:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have seen how Your servants may glorify You.
