When Love Loves Most - Poem by ArmourQuill Hunter

Jesus relates expectations of others speaking of his generation.
‘As kids in market‘ men call to you to do them consideration.
John-Baptist came not eating or drinking; said of him: a devil.
Of Christ thought a winebibber and friend of sinners 'so evil.'

Howbeit, Christ recalled, Wisdom is justified of her own.
Then, a Pharisee asked Christ to come and visit at his home.
Against custom he hadn’t wash his guest feet while entering.
No thought of his guest ‘the judge of all Heaven’ relenting.

A woman there stood weeping with her alabaster box clear.
Washing Jesus‘ feet with her tears, she dried with her hair.
That host maligned her in thoughts to the Master of Heaven.
A parable He spoke of two debtors of varied sums, forgiven.

Said Christ: which one will love most, to the Pharisee host?
Though they had not to pay, I guess: the one forgiven most!
This prophet then related this to the woman he condemned.
Easily we judge, in thought, without knowing our very sin
