40 Days of Blogging Day 12: Vestments



The first vestments were made of fig leaves
Before that Sunday Best was the birthday suit
And after that God gave us leather - that chafed

There were several points to be noted
And vestments were made to cover them up
Flat-chested innocence was over and gone

The first vestments weren't any good
Because we made our vestments for ourselves
They must be made by and from someone else

We'll still need vestments when we're made perfect
Christ vested himself with us and became our sin
And made us his righteousness, vested with himself


A story on a similar theme, but with humour:
