Naked and empty-handed

We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born (Ecclesiastes 5:15; NLT).

We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love (1 John 4:16; NLT).

For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:26; NLT).

But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12; NLT).

We are naked
And empty-handed
Before you,
Every day –

Men and women,
Young and old,
Rich and poor,
Sick and well –

Yet you love us all
So much,
For we are
Your children.
