Compassion and love given to heal the wounds of loss,
Perhaps unwisely—a risk was taken.
To walk with one limping is no easy task.

But somehow, and quickly, sides were exchanged,
And thus proceeded a reversal that would confound the wisest of men.
The once limping was found healthy and happily skipped away
While the once healthy found in himself his own wounds of immense loss.

He must know a great deal about this reversal.
His wholeness was given to us in exchange for our brokenness.
What a trade—what a tragic trade!   Yet willingly.

And He must also have known what that great Danish philosopher made clear:
Victorious love can vanquish even the most loveless, the hardest of souls,
But it’s still a risk.
