THE BETTER HALF

THE BETTER HALF
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

What if God worked
Half-hearted measures
In half-hearted people?
What if our …
Fickleness
Faithlessness,
Frailties,
and
Fears
Resulted in a Holy divorce?
God separating Himself,
Serving papers,
“Calling it Quits.”
Drawing the line.
Done.
Complete.
Over.
Final.

No more
Abiding together.
~~~
What if God
Loving man ...
Depended upon man
Loving God.

Then what?
Hmmm.
Dismal,
Distressing,
Depressing,
Disheartening.
Don’t have what it takes
To love God
Decidedly,
Deservedly,
Deliberately,
For even
One day.
~~~
God implemented
A full-hearted strategy
to love
Half-hearted people …
His Son;
Our Savior.
His life-blood;
Our hope.
His nearness;
Our need.
His love,
Our remedy.

The act of reconciliation.
~~~
In the Holy ceremony
Called
Salvation …
God made full way
To love half-hearted man
And
God will always be ... 
The
Better
Half.

And
You will always be ...
The
Half
He
Loves.

“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus.
Who gave Himself a ransom for all …”
1 Timothy 2:6-7a
