Save us from thinking we need more,
Need to add extra things,
To make us acceptable,
Powerful, superior, appealing,
Save us from the deception,
That we are not enough,
That we need something more
To make us like gods.
When we are already made in your image,
Already fashioned like you, by you,
Already treasured and highly valued by you,
Worth your own life, worth your own son.
Save us from reaching for that fruit
Which only leads to nowhere,
Save us from filling the gap inside,
With something unreal,
When we can fill it with you.
Genesis 1 v 26 & Genesis 3 v 5
