Reflection: Tempted God

Here’s a reflection on the temptation of Christ from Roddy Hamilton.

Reflection
(inspired by Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, and Luke 4:1-13)

Tempted God
O how good it is to say that
Tempted God
not so different from us
Tempted God
in the wilderness

Entrapped God
caught between the theology and the reality
Entrapped God
caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
Entrapped God
caught up in the wilderness

Inveigled God
facing choices to decide the kingdom way
Inveigled God
facing the lure of the world or the passion of heaven
Inveigled God
facing wilderness...
