The Pledge

Sin carved its name deep in my tree. It seemed for a moment as innocent as two different initials pledged to each other in the center of a hand-carved heart. But nothing really is very simple when it involves any matter of the heart. So I took my love to another. I took my love to the One who carved his initials on another tree, pledging his life for mine.

"...For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
-Jesus (Matthew 20:28)
