Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

We like to add our captions
To everything God says,
That we might speak for God Himself
And change Him as we please;

We use translations of His words
To put the sheep in chains,
So they must dance to our own tune
Within our favorite games.

But God’s infinity is larger
Than all the words we know—
And He will never play along
Or yield to our control.

He breaks the chains we’ve welded
And sets his people free
And takes our prideful hearts by hand
To learn humility.

Another poem that puts truth in uncomfortable focus. When will we learn?
