What sign

           The leaders then said to him,
           “What sign can you show us for doing this?”

                        —John 2.18

Sin’s perspective is hierarchical.
Everything is of relative power and authority,
every action, every person, every moment ranked,
every truth proven by a stone-carved law,
every life measured on a scale.

But in the real world there are no ranks,
there is no proof, no authority.
The first is last, the last first.
Everything is a sign of everything.
Everything shines.

There is only love, doing its best,
and fear, getting in the way.
Love is the only sign,
the only authority, the only power.
All else is illusion.

Tyrants threaten, laws dictate,
styles prescribe, fears control…
ignore them.
Love alone is your badge, your guide,
your power.
