John 3:16 on Clothing


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son…”
So I could buy this poorly made dress at Pay Half
Redeemed by being made in the USA
Not by cheap labor in bad conditions
Though how sure can I be?
Trust in a short tag that will shrivel
After a few wash cycles
Or merely believe because it tells me
“…that whoever believes in him shall not perish…”
Like those who simply trust eight characters
Without knowing the words at all
Deeming the purchase righteous
Believing it more blessed than brands sans verses
Hoping it ends up in consignment
To be picked up and possibly worn again
Not to be trashed or shredded
“…but have eternal life.”
