To give everything
without consideration of recompense
would seem ludicrous in the extreme.
Why would you?
How could you?
What would possess you?
Could it be…
Some well-intentioned but misguided
balancing of red and black ink?
Stubborn disregard for the standard mode of thinking?
to fit it neatly
The ultimate warrior,
is where we discover
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8
