12/26 Limerick: Beyond Sacrifice


To see God with eyes that are fresh
We must let him prepare our flesh
For mere sacrifice
Won’t make us think twice
Until we’re reborn in a crèche

“You did not make me give you sacrifices and offerings
Instead you made my flesh ready to receive your Word”

[My attempt to harmonize the Masoretic Text of Psalm 40:6 with the Septuagint of Hebrews 10:5]
