let it pour!

   is the spark
      that sets fire
         to the building.

   is the droplet
      that puts out
         any such flame.

in this world,
   this ball of fire,
      let it rain, o' God!²
         let it pour!

John 13:35; 15:13
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Philippians 2:3-8

¹selflessness is lovingly
forsaking self for the
benefit of another/others;

of another/others ahead of
ourselves with no personal
gain expected in return;
modeled by Jesus for us to

²this love is the love of
God poured into us to pour
out of us
