Celestial Checkmate

God shows strength, scattering the proud, removing from thrones the mighty, lifting the lowly, filling with good the hungry, sending away empty the rich (Luke 1.51-53; my paraphrase)

Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of God (Luke 6.20b; my paraphrase)


All – kings and queens, bishops, knights, and rooks – sit on the second sheltered row, protected by the lowly pawns; the symbols, in number, of superfluity and, in position, of disposability. Yet this, the front row, is where God lives and moves and loves most.
